The children of Kilchuimen & Invergarry Primary Schools worked with Storyteller Nicola Wright & with Joyce Gilbert to learn these stories. Artist Iona MacLeod spent time with them too, as they created sculptures linked to the local tales that they were learning.
The video link above shows all the short video stories featured on the map.
In November 2022 Nicola Wright visited Glengarry. Nicola is a professional story teller, working with various organisations, for schools and at historic sites.
But she doesn't 'just' tell stories, she works with groups to become story tellers themselves. Connecting and learning about the past and building skills for the future.
And like all the best types of learning- it's fun!
Nicola is also taking part in The Gathering/An Cruinneachadh.
In autumn 2022, The Fort Augustus & Area Gaelic Group worked in partnership with The Royal Scottish Geographical Society (RSGS) to support primary schools in Invergarry and Fort Augustus to do projects with themes that prepared the way for The Gathering/An Cruinneachadh.
The Glengarry Trust and FAGCC also supported linked sessions for young people at Glengarry Community Woodland and The Old Convent Wood - 'Rewilding Ourselves.'
Meanwhile, additional funding was secured from the Scottish International Festival of Storytelling to hold the Glen of the Bards winter event in Invergarry.
The Gathering / An Cruinneachadh Community Arts Project has been made possible by the generous grants received from; Fern Community Funds, Beinneun Wind Farm. Along with match funding from The Fort Augustus and Glenmoriston Community Company.
