Déirdre Ní Mhathúna
Déirdre Ní Mhathúna is an artist, singer and researcher. The visual arts and socially-engaged arts practice are equally important in her creative work with communities in the Gàidhealtachd as well as further afield. The Psalmboat Project/Pròiseact Bàta nan Salm on the Isle of Lewis has been an important locus of her work since its first event on the shores of Loch Èireasort on the feast of Colmcille, 2010.
"It is a privilege to join CHArts as we celebrate #Colmcille1500 this year. In my two short films I have set out to show the depth of Colmcille’s legacy in the Scottish Gàidhealtachd.
Tha e na urram dhomh a bhith an sàs ann an CHArts am bliadhna, 's sinne a' comharrachadh #Colmcille1500. Tha mi an dòchas gum bi an dà fhiolm goirid agam a’ sealltainn doimhneachd dìleab Cholmcille ann an Gàidhealtachd na h-Alba."
