Culture Cafe is a meeting and networking space for people working in the arts in the Moray area.

About Culture Café

Founded in 2011 as a meeting place for the local arts community, Culture Café brings together people who work in the arts who are interested in networking, sharing ideas, developing partnerships and peer support.

Culture Café has been used to launch projects, establish sector-wide strategies and introduce partners from health and social care, business and education.

Host a Culture Café

Let’s begin by saying that there is no rigid format, all we ask is that your own event is in keeping with the ethos and ideas outlined in the Culture Café Manifesto

Culture Café is all about creating a mutually supportive environment in which arts and culture can flourish.
