October 29 @ 10:00 am – 11:30 am
10-10.40am, Neil Ogilvy from MGS will join us to discuss their project ‘Forum Connections’. Forum Connections is a 4-year MGS project, funded by the NLHF, designed to build the capacity of Scotland’s museums for partnership working through investment in Scotland’s geographic forums. This session will provide an overview and give an opportunity to ask any questions to the project team.
10.45-11.30am. ‘The Coast that Shaped the World is a west coast maritime heritage project, which covers the area from Wester Ross down to Arran and including the Outer Hebrides and islands. A community-led, story based project, stories will be gathered from 20 destinations across the west coast – stories that shaped our coastal communities into what they are today and which convey how our maritime cultural and natural heritage helped to shape the world. These stories will be narrated through a website, app and programme of immersive and inspirational digital exhibitions. The aim is to attract people to come to the less-visited areas of the west coast of Scotland. The project is engaging local ‘story gatherers’ within these 20 destinations and communities, and we hope to work as closely as possible with local museums and heritage centres throughout each stage of the project and also as locations for the digital exhibitions/installations which will be in place for 2022’s Year of Scotland’s Stories.
