THE GUILD DUMFRIES was founded in Spring 2018 and we're a not-for-profit social enterprise based in Dumfries. We provide a platform, opportunities and support for makers, creatives and producers to help their businesses flourish and grow. We are managed for the benefit of the community rather than for an owner or shareholders, where profits are re-invested into developing the types of facilities, projects, events, activities and opportunities our community and town needs.
Our long term vision is to reclaim a property in the heart of Dumfries town centre and make it a true community asset. An indoor community space offering multiple, affordable, rentable retail concessions as part of a collective of local makers, producers, artists and independent businesses providing a town centre presence with minimal overheads. In addition, we will provide studio space for creative freelancers, a community kitchen, flexible event space, modern craft and creative business workshops alongside a programme of activities that encourage connection and participation.
The Guild also produce a monthly curated street market festival. DUMFRIES MARKET FESTIVAL is a destination event, a unique and interesting experience to promote a sense of community pride, social interaction and plays a part in the regeneration of Dumfries town centre. It provides our community of makers, creatives and producers a platform to showcase their products and services to potential customers.
