Hollywood might be famous for its stars, but the people of Collywood are just as talented. This Spring, the Collier's Wood Art Festival is providing a showcase for local artists, musicians, writers, and dancers. There are tons of free and cheap activities for families to get involved in, from music lessons to poetry slams. Some events have already taken place - yesterday I took part in a free pottery class - but there are plenty more on the way.
