Designed as a meeting place for the local arts community, Culture Café brings together people who work in the arts to share ideas, make new contacts, develop partnership and build new collaborations, provide peer support and, of course, enjoy excellent local food and drink. Jointly founded and coordinated by Findhorn Bay Arts and Bodysurf Scotland, each event is hosted by a different arts organisation, in partnership with a local venue.
There have been over 10 Culture Café events since the start of the initiative in 2011, hosted by a range of individuals and organisations. Culture Café has been used to launch projects, establish sector-wide strategies and introduce partners from health and social care, business and education. Culture Cafés are currently supported through the Creative Place Programme award which supports the costs towards 6 Culture Café events.
