As Skye and Lochalsh Talent Development Partners we are thrilled to launch this two-day, free event that not only brings to a conclusion the talent development awards programme 2014-16 but also offers the opportunity for the wider creative community to gather and hear from inspiring people.

Building on the success of last year’s inaugural GATHER | CONNECT | INSPIRE event, ATLAS Arts is pleased to be partnering with Aros, Fèisean nan Gaidheal,SEALL and Sabhal Mòr Ostaig to connect our audiences with inspiring and engaging creative individuals from across Scotland.

Over the two days we will hear from a variety of people who work in the creative industries, sharing their experiences and offering advice. This is a unique opportunity to connect with them and extend your creative networks.
