Lyth Arts Centre and Sinéad Hargan (Highland Culture Collective Caithness Artist in Residence) invite you to the first ever Caithness Culture Café.
Culture Café is a meeting place for practising artists and people who work in the arts. It is about positive contribution, the sharing of inspirational ideas and the developing of local creative partnerships and collaborations. Read the Culture Café Manifesto.
This Culture Cafe will be a dinner and discussion. Each table will be hosted by a local artist working with socially engaged themes. The discussions might explore socially engaged arts practice, place-based approaches, ecological arts practice, communities of place, politics of place, stories of place, managing expectations and thinking on our feet.
This will be an opportunity to meet artists and creatives working in Caithness, including the Lyth CAIR: Caithness Artists in Residence. We will enjoy a meal together as we begin to build a network of artists and creatives with a focus on community based and participatory work.
Whether you are an artist or musician already working with a socially engaged or participatory practice or are just interested in hearing more about these themes and practices, this event is for you! It’ll will be a night of good food for thought (and good food too)!
Free but booking essential. Ticket includes entry and dinner.
