sruth-mara has four core aims:

– to develop ambitious new arts projects from Lewis that combine an international outlook with strong roots in Hebridean and Gaelic culture.

– to programme high quality arts events in partnership with our local community.

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

– to establish an inspiring new space for artist residencies.
