Narture Ayr

Narture CIC is an artist collective baking real bread and food/drinks from scratch to earn the dough to fund arts projects. We aim to use creativity to reanimate the historic quarter of Ayr, driven by experiential retail and cultural tourism. Our core objective is to provide community benefits by developing income sources, primarily through food and drinks and socially engaged arts. Being a community interest company, we value volunteering for the people contributing back to their communities but also through the people who would like to develop their own skills.
