Award for Alchemy Film & Arts

Alchemy Film & Arts in Hawick won the Creative Regeneration prize at the annual SURF Awards, delivered by SURF – Scotland’s Regeneration Forum – in partnership with the Scottish Government.

The outcomes of the 2022 for Best Practice in Community Regeneration were announced at a celebratory presentation event in Glasgow last week.

Representatives of the five category winning initiatives were personally congratulated on their inspiring work by the Scottish Government’s Minister for Public Finance, Planning and Community Wealth, Tom Arthur MSP.

The SURF Awards are delivered each year by SURF, a regeneration forum with over 300 cross-sector member organisations across Scotland, in partnership with the Scottish Government. The purpose is to highlight, celebrate and share the achievements of initiatives that address physical, social and economic challenges in communities across Scotland, which is particularly prevalent given the impacts of the pandemic and current cost for living crisis.
