Nowhere Art Club

Nowhere Art Club is an art and dance club led by Molly Danter and Skye’s 11 – 17-year-olds. Molly is a dancer, artist and storyteller from Edinbane working with ATLAS and Seall this year as an artist in residence.

Nowhere Art Club takes place across a range of venues in Portree – outdoors, at the Oyster Table in Bayfield, under canvas, on walks and in large indoor spaces – and when necessary online. It’s open to anyone aged 11 – 17.

This club is a space to experiment and reinvent. We might use movement, writing, collage, dance parties, drawing and bookmaking, but you decide what you’re interested in making, doing and talking about. You don’t need to have an interest in art, dance or music to take part – its a space to chat and do something creative together.

Nowhere Art Club will take place over various days during the Summer holidays. We meet online during COVID restrictions and in person in and around Portree when we can do so safely.

How to join:

Membership is free and includes an activity pack which will be sent out to participants after sign-up. To register or find out more, email

Molly will send a welcome pack which will include some materials for making, including a notebook and disposable camera.

About Molly Danter:

Molly Danter began dancing with SkyeDance at Portree High School, and studied dance at London Contemporary Dance School, including a semester at Salzburg Experimental Academy of Dance. After that, she worked with Scottish Dance Theatre first as an apprentice dancer then for a short time as guest dancer. Since then she has worked as a freelance dancer, maker and teacher in the UK and Europe.

As well as dance, Molly works with text and film and often collaborates with other artists. She is especially interested in the relationship of self and other, and empathy plays a large role in how she approaches making, leading and performing work.
