With all that has been going on around the world, I wanted to address fear. I think fear is justified but does not solve the issues we face. I think it entices people to think, vote and act in a more extreme and irrational manner. How do we conquer fear rationally? How do we show strength in dark times? ... By going outside!

I have been awarded a British Empire Medal (BEM) for services to the arts in Fife. It is really great to be rewarded for six hard years of voluntary work. My community projects, Arts In Fife & Arts In Britain are very important to me and I just want to say thankyou for all the support. I hope to continue my work talking about, writing about, reading about, creating, displaying and researching art. I am passionate about it and I hope it shows through my six years of service to volunteering and the arts. - Stuart Russell (22)
