Findhorn Bay Arts presented Scotland’s first ever Culture Day at venues across Moray on Saturday 21 September 2013.
Based on the successful model of Culture Night events held annually in Copenhagen, Dublin, Belfast and other European cities, Culture Day provided an opportunity for audiences of all ages – visitors and locals – to connect with the rich heritage and diverse range of arts and cultural activity that takes place in Moray throughout the year.
After being staged as a standalone event in 2013-15, Culture Day become a core part of the biennial Findhorn Bay Festival programme.
Each Culture Day, the heart of Forres was brought to life with creativity. Alleys, cafes, pubs, artists studios, shops, bus stops, parks and playing fields, community spaces and halls burst to life with a mix of free performances, film screenings, music, poetry readings, exhibitions, talks, demonstrations, workshops and interactive events.
