Celebrating American Politics
at The Filmhouse in Edinburgh
Showing U.S. Political Films in run-up to the 2016 Presidential election with discussions after each film with Scottish MSP's and local politicians.
For anyone interested in this historical American Presidential election, here's a chance to see ourselves through the eyes of others - two months of tremendous American political films being aired starting the end of September till the end of November 2016 with the majority of the screenings being on Tuesday and Wednesday early evenings and one on Sunday afternoon. With discussions following after each film, this is a brilliant way to see how others see the American election from an international perspective. Here are the details - Hope to see you there!

The 66th UN DPI / NGO Conference
Every one thought we were a wee bit crazy because we decided to take our one year old toy poodle with us on an extended six week trip to America in Winter 2014. The UK now has a pet passport scheme and we decided to give it a try. Please join us on our journey.
Artist and art tutor Susan Forsyth gives an up close and personal introduction to the Scottish Colourists at Kirkcaldy Art Gallery at our February visit. AWCCS members and friends were (almost all) inspired to pick up paintbrushes!
