"We are very excited to be embarking on this new arts project with Imaginate. Working with a Gaelic artist in residence will not only enrich our pupil’s learning, understanding and love of the arts but will importantly enrich their Gaelic language. Having worked with Imaginate in the past we have a great appreciation for their experience, professionalism and dedication to Gaelic arts. "

—Katie Wight, Taobh na Pàirce

Fàs is a new project in partnership with Taobh na Pàirce primary school led by Gaelic Artist in Residence Rona MacDonald from September 2018 to March 2019.  Rona will create a new work in progress for young audiences using text, movement and live performance to explore ideas of migration. Some of her time will be spent working with Primary 3 pupils at Taobh na Pàirce to collaborate with them in the development of the material.  Rona will also have residency time to focus on her own artistic practice alongside mentoring and a programme of professional development.

Rona will share this new work in progress with the school community and then again with the young audiences sector at the end of the project in early 2019.

If you would like to discuss this project, or Imaginate's work with schools and communities, please contact Fiona Ferguson, Creative Development Director.


Fàs is funded by Bòrd na Gàidhlig and Creative Scotland.
