Projects and Events
We work in collaboration with community groups as much as possible to organise events where we can present the recordings in the areas from which they originate and to demonstrate how to use the website in the most effective way. We also use these events as opportunities to find contributors, or their next of kin, so that we can obtain permission for their recordings to be made available online. It is very rewarding to meet contributors and relatives of contributors, and to hear about the personal connections they have with the recordings.
We have organised events with groups from lots of different areas including Tiree, Applecross, South Uist, North Uist, Farr, Barra, Sutherland, and North Skye.
Our most recent community visit was when we worked with Ionad Chaluim Chille Ìle to organaise a series of events on Islay in November 2019. Floraidh and Friseal delivered presentations to local Gaelic speakers, Gaelic learner groups, as well as primary and secondary Gaelic pupils.
Due to Covid restrictions, community visits have not been possible but we hope to resume these once it is safe to do so and we welcome invitations from community groups across Scotland to organise an event in their area.
