Culture Café Animateur Activity

Thanks to Highlands and Islands Enterprise Community Support Fund, Culture Cafe was able to support four contemporary artists / creative practitioners and one collective, who have been negatively impacted by the COVID-19 lockdown restrictions. Throughout June and July, the artists and practitioners have been exploring and trying out ways to stimulate and strengthen the Culture Café model and increase the benefit to the people who attend the network events. You can find out more about the work of the Animateurs below, or on our social media platforms, Facebook and Instagram.
