Cultural Exchange Project 2022

sharing language through stories, music and song and fun activities in each place

Sruth took place between 11-14th August in Inverness and 7-10th October in Dundalk.

Online Workshops

This project brought together twelve young people from Scotland and Ireland to explore their shared Gaelic heritage through stories, music and song. Participants were aged between 14 and 18, they were fluent in their respective languages and were at an intermediate to advanced level in their chosen specialism.

Participants took part in two face to face residential weekends (one in Inverness and one in Dundalk) led by our team of tutors and supervisors. In addition, there were three online workshops developing language skills and exploring the resources of Tobar an Dualchais and the Taisce Cheol Dúchais Éireann (Irish Traditional Music Archive). The overarching themes for the project were place names, travel and connections.
