sruth-mara (‘sea current’ in Gaelic) is a small but ambitious arts organisation based in Aird Uig on the Isle of Lewis. It was founded in January 2018 by Andrew Eaton-Lewis, a leading arts practitioner in Scotland who works between Uig and Edinburgh.
You can read more about our work to date here.
sruth-mara has four core aims:
– to develop new arts projects from Uig with potential UK-wide/international appeal, and involve the community in the creative process.
– to support the development of new 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.
You can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you to An Lanntair, Comhairle nan Eilean Siar, Ionad Hiort and especially Uig Community Centre for advice, support and encouragement, and to poet Peter Mackay for helping to find the right name.
