Current Project: CÒIG SGIATHAN | FIVE WINGS

ATLAS ARTS is an itinerant arts organisation based in the Isle of Skye that celebrates and explores the specificity of place within a local, national and international context.

An organisation ‘without walls’, we are uniquely placed to deliver a contemporary arts programme in a dispersed, remote rural setting. ATLAS provides opportunities for artists to extend their practice through commissions, socially engaged projects, exhibitions, cultural exchanges, residencies, workshops, educational programmes and projects that strongly connect communities.
