Findhorn Bay Arts are undertaking a feasibility study to review their experience and learning after four years of running a multi-purpose shop and hub on Forres High Street.
Working with local regeneration specialists Isabelle Guerrini de Claire and Iain Findlay, the consultation with Moray communities will seek to build a picture of ways that food, creativity and culture intersect in Moray.
‘The Space Between’ will be where new ideas and possibilities are created with communities in Moray.
Supported by funding from Moray Local Action Fund, the consultation will engage with local food networks and community groups to present options for the potential development of a space that continues to support organic and local growers, producers and farmers.
Isabella Guerrini de Claire said, “Food is an important part of our daily lives; it gives us energy, nutrients, and satisfaction.
“But can we value it beyond its role in our bodily mechanisms?
“Food in the last 20 years has been gaining immense popularity as a serious art medium.
“The markets for art and food are very closely related. They both rely on consumers, but mostly supporters who chip in to support regenerative change, innovation and potential.
“And just like art, food relies on the creativity of the farmer, the producer and the chef to keep business going.”
