A one-day symposium at Taigh Chearsabhagh Museum and Arts Centre, North Uist
Saturday 23rd November 2019
9.30am – 3.30pm
To celebrate Taigh Chearsabhagh hosting the Donald Smith exhibition this one-day symposium creates an opportunity to explore the continued attraction for artist educators to live and work in rural island communities in Scotland.
Over the years there have been significant changes to the arts education curriculum delivered in primary and secondary schools. At tertiary level students no longer have to travel to the mainland art schools to study degree courses in arts and design. The option to study with the UHI has extended the breadth of creative learning and lifestyle choices for students who choose to live on an island.
Artists and creative practitioners working across the education spectrum are invited to join us in Taigh Chearsabhagh and share their experience of learning and research.
