See Us – Independent State of Happiness

What a busy time November’s turned out to be! Amongst all my other projects came a very fruitful and constructive exchange trip to Northern Ireland and Donegal with the amazing CeangalG programme, an EU-funded initiative under the INTERREG IVA programme to help promote collaboration between speakers of Scots and Irish Gaelic and develop the ‘Greater Gaeltacht’ between the two countries. It meant two days for me travelling with the friendly Scottish delegation from SEALL & Sleat Community Trust to visit the amazing Cultúrlann in Belfast, the Turas centre in East Belfast and An Carn in Carntogher.

It was a fantastic opportunity I’m truly grateful for and which gave the opportunity to develop constructive business partnerships with our respective Gaelic languages at the core. Very much looking forward to collaborating with at least two of these partners next year in delivering more innovative Gaelic and Irish-language contemporary arts services!
