Tha am pròiseact a rinn Cothrom airson Soillse deiseil. Seo Gordon Wells:
The Cothrom project supported by the Soillse Small Research Fund is now complete. The project was presented by Gordon Wells at the recent Soillse Conference at Sabhal Mòr Ostaig, and the full report is now online. It can be accessed via this link, or directly from the Soillse website. The full project title is “Perceptions of Gaelic Learning and Use in a Bilingual Island Community: An Exploratory Study”. It sought to document a range of views among Gaelic supporting members of the Uist community, several of whom were also contributors to the Guthan nan Eilean/Island Voices project.
It is hoped to use this report as a basis for further discussion and action in the local community. The Cothrom Language and Culture group will be meeting soon to discuss ways of taking it forward.
Hebridean Voices get a hearing alongside Caribbean ones on the “Silver Screen” at the Benbecula Community Cinema on Saturday 10th September. Blockbusting “Pirates of the Caribbean – on Stranger Tides” gets its Uist premiere, with a retrospective selection of Series One Island Voices shorts offered up as a tasty starter. The focus this time is on Hebridean Food!
Neil Campbell from Sustainable Uist is keen to showcase local productions alongside headlining feature films in an exciting programme for Benbecula Community Cinema over the coming months.
