Heart of Hawick

Heart of Hawick is an arts and culture led regeneration project, designed to make a substantial contribution to the social, cultural and economic well-being of Hawick and the wider Borders.

The project transformed three derelict buildings in the West End of the town with the aim of creating jobs, building new sustainable facilities and encouraging visitors to the area.
