Cultural Exchange Project 2022

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

11-14th August – Inverness
7-10th October – Dundalk

Online Workshops | weeks beginning 22.08, 05.09, 19.09 (tbc)

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

Participants will take 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 will be 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 will be place names, travel and connections.
