The Stove Network is about people coming together to use the arts, culture and creativity to improve the places where we live. When you join The Stove, you become a member of an active, diverse and caring community that consists of over 650 artists and other active citizens, ranging from café-owners to wild food chefs, from video artists to DJs, from local businesses to retirees. While the bulk of our members come from Dumfries and the wider region, many others are from the rest of Scotland, the UK and beyond.
Stove members care about a wide range of issues: culture and the arts, heritage, community activism, regeneration, the environment and so much more. Collectively, we have already achieved great changes and by lending your voice you can help us to achieve even more for Dumfries and Galloway.
Membership of The Stove brings with it distinct benefits for people with a whole host of interests, skills and ambitions. Read more about them below as well as testimonials from our members.
