Future Leaders for Creative Communities in Gaelic

This six-day programme will take you on a journey, beginning by exploring cultural identity and reflecting on how this shapes our creative activities. We will create a peer group of young creative leaders, who can support and stimulate each other on their enterprise journeys.

The aim is to build innovative and successful communities, at the heart of which are enterprises anchored by Gaelic language and culture.

Culture is how we make sense of the world around us. When we engage in creative activities – music, art, writing, drama – this reflects our own culture. By understanding and celebrating our cultural identity, we can begin to use it as the basis for creative enterprises in our communities.
