Combine to Create is a new and collaborative programme of creative activities in Moray supported by Creative Scotland through the Culture Collective Fund.
Building on previous work and reflecting on the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, Combine to Create will test and inspire new ways of working within and between creative practitioners and communities of identity and place through residencies that make creative things happen.
We will soon be announcing our open calls for future residencies through the Combine to Create programme. Keep an eye on our social media or sign up to our newsletter for more info.
