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.

Read the Culture Café Manifesto or find out how to host a Culture Café.

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.

Culture Café ran two series of Animateurs (a programme supporting contemporary artists/creative practitioners who the COVID-19 crisis had negatively impacted) during a lockdown period in 2020. You can read more about the work of the past Animateurs here.

Big Friday night cheers to everyone who took part in The Birdhouse Photography Collective exhibition preview and discussion. Topics included: the benefits of viewing online #exhibitions from a rural base; not being able to have a relationship with the #audience; online exhibitions are cheaper, no hanging deadlines and no competition for wall space; a vehicle for #artists to express what we are all going through during #lockdown; a way that we can keep #connectedness and open up new relationships.
The next event is on Monday with #Animateur Rachael Macintyre who is hosting The Cooking Céilidh from 4pm. See www.culturecafe.scot for more details. #wemakemoray #moray #culturecafemoray #onlineexhibitions
