Established in 2010, The Red Field is a community interest company based in Fife, Scotland and led by a team of five creative practitioners. We are; Tim Fitzpatrick, Babs McCool, Tracey McConnel Wood, Ali Maclaurin and Sean Dooley.
We create, promote, and facilitate community arts projects across a wide spectrum of arts disciplines – reflecting each of our distinct backgrounds and interests – and, in our short life as The Red Field, have made some very rewarding, as well as innovative connections, to community groups right across Scotland.
With funding from Historic Scotland, Fife Council and UNESCO Scotland and others, The Red Field (or Red Field Arts community interest company to give us our full title) has carried out several major community arts projects to date and, right now, new and contrasting projects are at different stages of progress.
A recently completed project has taken us all over the Scottish Borders resulting in a huge range of responses to a recently discovered fragment of a medieval manuscript: the Hawick missal fragment.
This has been the Fragments project, led by Tim Fitzpatrick and Matthew Cheung Salisbury of Oxford University, with some wonderful opportunities for music collaborations with The Andante Chamber Choir, Sean Doherty, Grayston Ives, Michael Nyman and Goldie.
