In 2014 we joined forces with ATLAS Arts, Skye, to collaborate on a unique two-year arts programme for Uist, entitled Broad Reach.
ATLAS Arts is a venue-less organisation who specialise in socially engaged methodologies working closely between residents – their heritage, stories and practices – and the artists who develop the work on location. That methodology has delivered a variety of successful programmes in the Isle of Skye over the last three years, including; SpinCycle, Walker and Bromwich’s Bàta Brèagha / Bonnie Boat Bonnie Boat, and còmhlan bheanntan | a company of mountains.
Broad Reach’s aim was to be outward looking and all encompassing reflecting the broad cultural richness of Uist whilst bringing the highest quality of contemporary art to our community.
