Eigg Island is a project that started with a trip to the Isle of Eigg in the Scottish Hebrides in April this year, which inspired a series of artworks and exhibitions by Rose Strang (see selected images below videos)
This in turn inspired Poet, Jennifer L Williams and Cellist/Composer, Atzi Muramatsu, to respond to the paintings (first video, below) which led to a collaboration which we plan to develop into new commissions into next year, if funding goes ahead (see first video, below)
Artists, musicians and filmmakers from the Isle of Eigg have been invited to join the project and we await the outcome from Creative Scotland and Ideas Tap
The exhibition space has already been booked at the Scottish Storytelling Centre for March 2015 (second video, below) and we'll know by November 2014 if it can all go ahead!
So, enjoy the videos, feel free to donate! (anything from £5 upwards) or share the Ideas Tap fund raising link -
Thanks for watching and reading
