Funded by the Scottish Government, Ràmh has supported a variety of island practitioners and organisations to date to undertake new projects and has promoted existing success, aiming to assist in protecting the remarkable heritage which underpins work across Argyll’s islands.
So far, CHARTS staff have consulted with island residents to understand how best to support current and future cultural activity, allowing development to be informed by island residents themselves. This has involved in-person visits and surveys and combined consultation with knowledge exchange opportunities where possible.
“The rich culture and heritage of Argyll is created through a diverse mix of islands and the uniqueness of each community that inhabited them. Our creative output speaks to the individualism of each island. CHARTS Islands development project Ràmh aims to bring Argyll’s islands to the forefront, regionally, nationally and internationally.’’ Islands Officer Caitlin McNeill
The Island Development Project Ràmh is funded by The Scottish Government and supported by Argyll and Bute Council, and the Scottish Islands Team. Islands projects are also supported by Bòrd na Gàidhlig and Creative Scotland.
