The Northern Lights Teachers Conference 2007 will be at the newly-opened Moray Art Centre at The Park, Findhorn, on 19-20 November.

This year the conference focuses on CREATIVITY.

The two days will be a hands-on, experiential journey of artistic discovery using a variety of expressive media with nature as an inspiration, in the peaceful landscape of the Findhorn Peninsula.

There will be a balance between presentations from world-class artists and choices of workshops everyday, with a group collaborative project culminating in a gala exhibition on the final evening.

Our aims are to stimulate and awaken a 'curious mind' as a launch-pad for both your students' and your own life as a creative artist, and to replenish our reservoirs with the nourishment of space, time and community.

Be challenged and excited by venturing into new and untried art forms, in the brand-new, cross pollinating environment of the Moray Art Centre.

  • Replenish your reservoirs

  • Stimulate your creative energies

  • Restore your connection with our creative source.
