Organisation aims and objectives

Moray Art Centre is an eco designed, purpose built Arts Centre, based on the Findhorn coast, North East Scotland and aims to provide a stimulating environment for visual arts education and appreciation. Moray Art Centre is a non-profit centre for the arts running an annual local and international programme of exhibitions, events, classes and art residencies. The carbon-neutral environmentally built and designed Centre is situated in the unique landscape of Findhorn Bay, Moray. Internally the new Centre has been planned to be a vibrant and motivating environment which allows people to meet, discuss and generate a community of creativity. The Centre has three flexible, rentable classrooms, four individual artist studios, a Community Gallery (Gallery 2), with meeting and study areas, and a main hi-spec gallery (Gallery 1). Since opening in 2008, 14,000 people have used the centre. It also has an active volunteer programme in place.
