To connect creativity, people and place by delivering high quality arts events and projects; nurturing and showcasing the creativity of the people of Moray and celebrating and promoting Moray as a place for outstanding art.
The Findhorn Bay area of Moray provides an inspiring backdrop of beautiful pine woodlands, miles of sandy beaches and idyllic fishing villages, and is home to many talented artists, including musicians, film-makers, dancers, performers, photographers, comedians, novelists, storytellers and poets, all of whom produce work which reflects and celebrates the landscape and culture in which it was created.
Based in the ancient market town of Forres, Findhorn Bay Arts is a non-profit organisation and company limited by guarantee, which is passionate about promoting this beautiful part of Scotland as a place for outstanding arts through the delivery of high quality arts events and projects.
Through events such as Culture Day and the biennial Findhorn Bay Festival, we aim to showcase and nurture the creativity of the area’s residents, whilst attracting high quality artists and productions to the area.
We are also proud to be part of Scotland’s National Youth Arts Strategy “Time to Shine”. IGNITE: Moray Youth Arts Hub aims to open up a range of exciting routes for children and young people to connect with creativity and explore arts in Moray.
Who We Are
Findhorn Bay Arts succeeds due of the passion and expertise of our participating artists and the energy and enthusiasm of our partners, volunteers and the local community. We are very much a collaborative venture and proud to be so.
At the heart of this, there is a small, dedicated team whose behind the scenes work might go unnoticed if we didn’t take this opportunity to tell you about ourselves!
