Where We are Now
Due to the impact of COVID 19, for Nithraid 2020 we have had to recognise that a single day event and physical gathering is not possible. Over the last 5 months we have seen the increased Importance of the River in people’s everyday lives and how it has contributed to their well-being. We have redesigned this year’s festival to encompass this Virtual Activity site and our Nithraid: Source to Sea project.
It explores Heritage, Art, Environment and Communities from the very beginning of the river Nith down to it end in the Solway Firth.
The Stove Network
The Stove Network is an arts-led community organisation based in Dumfries. Our aims include the support and promotion of diverse and inclusive cultural activity including drama, dance, digital media, heritage, music, literature, poetry, painting, film-making, photography and sculpture. Our vision is to expand and support contemporary cultural activity in South West Scotland for the wider benefit of our community. We have a permanent premise at 100 High Street with a The Stove Cafe as our main base of activity and regular program of events that are accessible to all.
