During early summer 2014, Australian artist Keg de Souza was artist-in-residence between Kilmuir and Linicro. Drawing on her practice investigating spatial politics, Keg developed the project Temporary Spaces, Edible Places with pupils in Kilmuir Primary School.

An artist who works with mediums such as inflatable architecture, drawing and dialogical projects to explore the politics of space, Keg is influenced by her formal training in architecture and experiences of radical spaces through squatting and organising. Keg’s work emphasises participation, reciprocity and often involves the process of learning skills and fostering new relationships to create site and situation-specific projects. For Temporary Spaces, Edible Places, the artist looked at the heritage of crofting in Skye and the sustainability of food production in the region.
