Source to Sea is a summer programme of events and activities celebrating Scotland’s Year of Coasts and Waters 2020/21. With the setting of the rural and coastal towns and villages of the Moray Firth Coastline, the festival is co-ordinated by Findhorn Bay Arts, and includes a floating kinetic water organ, a larger-than-life sea-goddess of wild Scottish waters, and a culmination of artists-in-residence Coleman & Hodges’ exhibition Northern Exposures – an installation of images and sound from a collective including Moray residents, capturing time and place over a period of months. Visual poetry performances, walks, talks, and tours will take place on and around the waters of Moray.
Organised with Covid-safety in mind, the festival aims to offer something for everyone to enjoy, and a chance to celebrate the area’s rich culture, heritage, and environment. A summer mini-market shop is now open on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays in Forres High Street, selling local produce from Moray’s growers, makers and producers, and tickets for the Source to Sea programme.
