ABOUT THE Duais Dìleab Chaluim Chille / COLMCILLE LEGACY AWARD
Duais Dìleab Chaluim Chille / The Colmcille Legacy Award, is a national arts and heritage award scheme created in partnership with Bòrd na Gàidhlig to commemorate the life and cultural legacy of Colmcille throughout the Year of Colmcille, 1500.
The project offers awards of up to £750 and online exhibition to profile and support Gaelic culture and language. We invite Gaelic artists' and non-Gaelic speakers working in partnership with Gaelic speakers, to create and display artwork which celebrates, remembers and interprets the role of Colmcille in the past and in contemporary society. Aiming to support a variety of work across arts media, artists are invited to submit proposals to support the development of new work, or highlight existing work.
This project, with a digital display approach, was designed to meet challenges presented by the impacts of Covid-19 at the time of the launch of Colmcille 1500.
The awards run until December 2021. Find out more about applying here.
