The Guild Dumfries C.I.C is a social enterprise based in Dumfries. We champion and showcase our community of makers, creatives, food & drinks producers from across the region. We provide a platform, opportunities & support so their businesses can flourish & grow.
Our ambitious plans are to breath new life into an underused building and create a permanent collective and volunteer run space for independent, community led, creative and cultural based projects. A place for the community and makers alike to meet, learn, participate, create and flourish! A unique creative community space in the heart of Dumfries town centre where people can meet, work, create & collaborate, with a strong ethos of encouraging participation & social inclusion. A place for ideas, imagination, making & possibilities.
The Guild Dumfries C.I.C also organise Dumfries Market Festival transforming the high street into a micro festival in the historic market town of Dumfries on the 2nd Saturday of the month from March to November. Showcasing makers, creatives, food & drink producers from the region & beyond. Supported by volunteers & celebrating community spirit. Plus a line up of entertainment, live music & fun for all the family. Meet local makers and producers in the heart of Dumfries town centre, it’s the perfect opportunity to head to the town centre and shop local.
