Evolve Arts and Tourism 2022

About Evolve Arts and Tourism

Evolve Arts and Tourism was created and carried out across Argyll and Bute to help mitigate the socio-economic challenges exacerbated by the pandemic. This project included commissioning area-based projects in Dunoon, Oban, Kyles of Bute and Lismore, also supporting the Cowal Summers Art Trail online 2022. Over the course of 2022, the projects emerged to create a unique offering for locals and visitors. 


Evolve supported:

  • Hannah Clinch, Tacit-Tacit, in the project We Are Building A Beach Hut.
  • Siàmh Sound in the creation of sound pieces on Lismore, to encourage visitors to explore and dwell in places of unique beauty and experiences.
  • Karen McPhail with 'Fragments' a project that created a trail of ceramic treasures for people to find.
  • Campbell and Joy Cameron in the creation of a unique Market Barra as a platform for selling local products and creating local experiences.
