Arts

The unique ecology and culture of the islands of Uist provide the context within which we are able to offer a very special creative programme with a distinct sense of place.

Through residencies, research, commissions, events and public programmes, Taigh Chearsabhagh provides unique opportunities for thought, creativity and interaction, creating an engaging, vibrant and diverse visual arts programme.

In the Outer Hebrides, more than most communities, we are linked to our unique environment. Our environmental focus aims to explore the boundaries of art, culture, environment and sustainability.

We develop themed exhibition programmes featuring a balance of the highest quality Scottish and international contemporary art, and island-based artists and crafts producers.

Taigh Chearsabhagh is unique amongst Scottish contemporary arts venues in offering, through UHI Lews Castle College, both a National Certificate in Art & Design and also a full 4 year Degree in Fine Art based at the centre.
