sruth-mara has four core aims:

– to develop ambitious new arts projects from Lewis that combine an international outlook with strong community engagement.

– to programme high quality arts events in Uig.

– to facilitate partnerships and collaborations between Lewis-based artists/organisations and artists/organisations from elsewhere.

– to establish an inspiring new space for artist residencies.
