To mark the culmination of the Skye and Lochalsh Talent Development Initiative (TDI), which was celebrated as part of GATHER | CONNECT | INSPIRE 2016, ATLAS produced a free magazine. The aim was to document the event through photography and explore and preserve the conversations that emerged as part of the project.
The GATHER | CONNECT | INSPIRE event sought to celebrate the work and research undertaken by the awardees as part of a wider programme of talks and workshops designed to create connections and inspire creativity.
Skye-based journalist Adam Gordon and photographer Cailean MacLean were invited to document the project’s end throughout the weekend of 29 and 30 July 2016. The magazine features interviews with those who attended, including talent development awardees alongside overviews of the presentations and workshops offered.
