Project ideas

Our approach to programming is both proactive and responsive. We are keen to work in partnership with organisations and individuals who share our enthusiasm for the River Tweed. Our team of River Culture Animateurs hold quarterly planning meetnigs to discuss the proposals we receive and how we might best be able to respond. If you have ideas that you would like to discuss with us, we encourage you to get in touch. The more notice you can give us the better. Please visit our Contact page to contact the appropriate person.
