Grantee News from Cape Farewell
across the Western Isles
Cape Farewell has returned from a 4 week sailing voyage across the Western Isles of Scotland, the first of 2 major Scottish expeditions which form the core of a 4-year programme of research, making and engagement among island communities. Investigating and celebrating the values and practices of stewardship, we were joined by 40 island, mainland and international artists and by scientists and researchers from NOC, SAMS, UHI and Aberystwyth University.
16 islands, 4 ceilidhs, 22 community events, numerous basking sharks, rare orchids, unpredictable winds, generous hospitality, resourcefulness, ingenuity and 86 blog posts. Check out the music, poetry, interviews, reflections and images generated by our sailors on our website. We’ll keep you posted as the programme develops in coming months.
