REsolve: a Creative Approach to the Circular Economy

Opens 26 February

Curated by artist-curator Mella Shaw, this exhibition from Fife Contemporary will showcase the work of contemporary artists, designers and makers and encourages new perspectives on resources, waste and how we live.

The objects on show will challenge expectations, spark dialogue and reveal an innovative and explorative approach to materials that is essential for our transition away from our current take-make-waste economy. Find out more about the exhibition here: REsolve: a Creative Approach to the Circular Economy


There’s no need to book for a visit to the library – you can find out more about what is currently available here: Kirkcaldy Library.

Please book an appointment to visit our Local & Family History room.

Unfortunately, the popular Wemyss Café is currently closed. We know how much visitors enjoy a cup of tea or coffee and a bite to eat when they visit and, having closed the café because of Covid-19, we are now taking the time to consider what we can best offer in this space. Our aim is to return with a high-quality service that’s in keeping with this great venue and provides the great experience we want you to have. 

Come and explore Kirkcaldy’s cultural hub
