We’ve largely been working on projects within this project. Some of the projects are about sharing the An Lanntair arts programme across the community and some are collaborations with academics, universities, other projects and organisations or something that has arisen from the art programming at An Lanntair.


Development of memory boxes in connection with academic partners.

Dance – how does this support communication and community?

Textiles and intelligent textiles – how does this support communication?

Eyes as Big as Plates – we bring this international art and photography project to the UK.
