What is Arts Live:

Arts Live is a diverse year-round performing arts programme based in Dumfries and Galloway; one of the most rural areas in Scotland, challenged by limited infrastructure to support the performing arts.

Dumfries and Galloway Arts Festival supports venues, artists and promoters from across the region, via our established (and growing) Arts Live Network, enabling the delivery of high quality, events to challenge and inspire our local communities.

Our mission, to support, develop and deliver performing arts across D&G, in partnership with venues, artists and communities, enriching lives and inspiring people has not changed.
