The Stove’s programme is made up of five strands of activity, Future Vision, Word, Music, Food and Visual – these help inform and direct our current core areas of interest. If you have an interesting idea that you think would fit into one of our strands that you would like to make happen at the Stove, details of how to submit project ideas are available here.
