Ràmh Knowledge Xchange Islands Online May - April 2023
Posted by CHARTS
Join us for Ràmh online!
The Ràmh team is hosting 4 online events aimed at connecting islanders involved in arts, culture and heritage. Each week will feature a different speaker who will give a 10-minute presentation on their experience in the creative industries, followed by a group chat. In addition, Ràmh Knowledge Xchanges have been designed for attendees to ask questions and explore important topics with peers and the CHARTS Island’s Team.
After the success of lockdown online events, CHARTS welcomes islanders to join us once again. These informal online sessions will allow members to meet neighbours, learn more about the work of individuals and groups in Scotland’s coastal communities, and get inspired without even purchasing a ferry ticket!
We recognise that islanders face challenges, and each island is different; what works for one community may not work for another. By learning about each others’ successes and challenges, we can get new ideas, try new things and support each other, regardless of levels of ambition, prior experience or resources.
Join us at 5.30pm online:

Ràmh: Islands Development project seeks to:
-Assist island communities in the promotion, protection and creation of arts, culture and heritage.
-Support communities in reinvigorating the local economy.
-Help community groups to create resilient, sustainable networks within which resources can be shared and the innovative and important creative work of islanders.
Every island is home to a distinct culture, a rich heritage and a unique point of view. CHARTS Islands Development project will assist islands in developing their own platform and foster inter-island connections so that the Argyll islands may dispel historical notions of remoteness and instead view Argyll’s islands as the home of the region’s culture.
Argyll and Bute boast a vibrant cultural industry. Ràmh aims to assist island communities in becoming more resilient by supporting local economies and inclusive engagement regardless of age, health and social circumstance. Where possible and desired, we also aim to offer accreditation for achievement in arts and heritage.
