About the project
Artist Mairi Gillies is exploring what it means to be part of the Gaelic community on the west coast of Lewis in a project funded by Bord na Gaidhlig as part of their year of coasts and waters.
Mairi will be speaking to community members about their experiences of living here, what this means to them, and gathering their stories to create several community artworks. These sculptures will be installed in brochs near the communities that have taken part in the project.
Want to take part? If you live on the West coast of Lewis (Port Ness to Uig) Mairi wants to speak to you! You don’t have to be a Gaelic speaker to be involved, you just need to be living here at the moment- all stories, from all ages, will be welcome.
