What's the Concept

Moving Arts Scotland is an Arts & Crafts, Community Interest Company

We are a collective of local, trained and experienced, artists and crafters who facilitate arts & crafts workshops/training from within Riverside Studios, 27 High Street, Ayr.

An established hub for creative industries, providing a bank of Artists from varied disciplines, to facilitate workshops, local community projects and develop their own working practice.

We wish to develop our social enterprise & business partnerships within the town, nationally & internationally beginning with grass root partners such as NHS and South Ayrshire Council as well as helping promote other local “ like minded “ social enterprises who are now part of the same town community newly developing “for the good of others” being their priority.

Skills Training

Besides art, we offer well-being services through our online mindfulness and yoga workshops.
