Cuimhne Memory Symposium

Tickets available now!

Tickets are on sale now for our very first Symposium, combining academic thought with artistic inspiration on community and dementia themes.

Hear from people who live with dementia, hear about Life Changes Trust, DEEP, hear about the Arora project work and look ahead to Cianalas project work.

Keynote speaker Professor Tim Ingold, Anthropologist, and Dr Stephanie Bunn, our partner for Woven Communities work.

See live performances, an exhibition encompassing all of the An Lanntair building, films, be inspired by workshops led by the Artists who led our workshops throughout our Arora work.

Enjoy traditional island foods and culture, see public art works created during our project and enjoy Ceilidh gatherings.

There will also opportunities to see the islands at your leisure, including Callanish Stones, Gearannan Blackhouse Village, Doune Carloway Broch, a Tweed weaving mill, over the Clisham to Luskentyre beach, Harris Distillery, maybe an eagle, some of the Uig Chessmen at Lews Castle Museum, travel on ferries to North & South Uist & Benbecula, see the Eriskay ponies and on to Barra and Vatersay, to watch the daily flight land on the beach runway and maybe catch a glimpse of a sea otter, seals and dolphins.

Cathy welcomes you to her island home.
