sruth-mara (‘sea current’ in Gaelic) is a new 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 local community in this process.

– 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.
