Welcome to Atlas

Based in Skye and Lochalsh, ATLAS was founded in 2010 with the aim of generating and presenting innovative and ambitious contemporary arts projects. An organisation “without walls,” we work with artists, curators, writers and the public to create work in response to a specific location or situation. We aim to inspire community interest in contemporary art by delivering a varied programme that is of local, national and international significance.
