pH2000 was a celebration of culture and change. The only Highland wide Scottish Millennium Festival event, it was run by Eden Court Theatre. pH2000 was a youth and community extravaganza for the Millennium created by local people.
Focusing on the theme of transformation, pH2000 demonstrated and built on the creativity, imagination and enthusiasm present in the Highland communities.
pH2000 was launched in April 1999. During the year and a half that pH2000 operated over 100 different groups and over 1,500 people participated, making this the largest community arts project in Scotland.
Creativity has been allowed to run riot, with support and training from pH2000 to create the most colourful and spectacular event Inverness has seen.
10,000 people from around the Highlands; friends, family and visitors to the area celebrated the millennium in this feast of colour, fun and excitement.
An hour long adventure into a mythical world of seahorses dragons and giants, created a truly spectacular show involving hundreds of young people.
Press and Journal
The whole thing was just amazing. A mixture of music, dance, street theatre, puppetry, exhibitions and a host of wandering circus and street performers. It was like a huge outdoor party - the atmosphere was just incredible.
Hundreds of young people have learnt new skills which they can put to future use... participants have been left in a position to carry on now that the project has finished. pH2000 has been very diligent in ensuring that it leaves a legacy.
The Inverness Courier
There can be no doubt that the benefits of the skills and confidence that the pH2000 project developed in the Highland communities will be felt for a very long time.
