We will tell you lots more about the Team soon, but until then here's a quick run down.

The Project Team

Joyce is the person who 

has set 'The Gathering/AnCruineachadh' in motion. 

She had the idea, gathered the team, secured funding and is managing the overall project. 

If you want to contact Joyce, just get in touch!

Joyce Brìghde Gilbert graduated with a BSc and PhD in Biochemistry and worked for six years in medical research before changing careers to concentrate on environmental education with a focus on community-based learning. Over the past 35 years she has worked for several organisations including Scottish Natural Heritage, RSPB Scotland, the Royal Scottish Geographical Society and Trees for Life. 


Joyce has a particular interest in working with communities to explore sense of place and has designed and managed several interdisciplinary heritage projects in the Highlands. 


A qualified primary teacher, she has a passion for the Gaelic language and culture and currently serves as a trustee with the charity Taigh Chearsabhagh on North Uist. 


Recently she designed and managed The Glenmoriston Musical Heritage Project and Glen of the Bards Project on behalf of the Fort Augustus and Area Gaelic Group and the Glenmoriston Improvement Group


In her spare time, she can be found pouring over old maps, exploring old tracks and paths or avidly making her latest craft project using found objects.
