KIDS were on the crest of a wave as Central Library as they enjoyed special creative sessions at Central Library.

Writing, watercolour painting and crafts were just some of the activities on offer at the library as part of 'Fun Palace' - a campaign where art and science is used to help change local communities.

The event is part of Inverclyde Council’s 'Making Waves' project which aims to transform local libraries into centres for culture and creativity.

Councillor Jim Clocherty, convener of the local authority's education and communities committee, said: “Fun Palaces are about shining a light on everyone’s existing creative skills and making the most of local strengths and assets.

"The ultimate aim is to change the way people think about culture so that everything that everyone creates is valued equally."

Stella Duffy, Fun Palaces co-director, said the idea behind the programme is to use art and science to boost cultural activity.

He said: "We believe in the genius in everyone, that there is an artist in everyone and in everyone a scientist.

"We believe that creativity in the community can change the world for the better.

"We believe we can do this together, locally, with radical fun – and that anyone, anywhere, can make a Fun Palace."
