Since June 2021 the Moray Way Association has been part of the Arts In Moray (AIM) Collective, which received Creative Scotland’s Culture Collective programme funding. This national pilot programme aims to establish a network of creative practitioners, organisations and communities working together to create a positive difference locally and nationally in response to COVID-19.
The AIM collective was started by Dance North Scotland, Moray Arts Development Engagement (M:ADE), Wildbird and the Moray Way Association. The group has been employing a new and radical approach to engaging a network of creative practitioners and communities within Moray through a residency programme that initially supported eight artist residencies from 2021 to 2022. Further funding this year has allowed the collective to employ a further 6 artists and 3 artists/producers. You can find out more about the AIM artists who have been working with MWA below.
