Seas our Future: Visioning Marine Protection in the Outer Hebrides
We’re excited to be supporting a series of creative activities run in partnership with artist Kirsty O’Connor and Taigh Chearsabhagh this Spring, as part of our ongoing work with the MarPAMM - Seas of the Outer Hebrides project.
Between 22nd May and 5th June Taigh Chearsabhagh will be running creative online workshops and outdoor activities exploring past, present and future An-dè, An-diugh ’s, A-Màireach visions for the seas of the Outer Hebrides.
Through creative activities supported by local artist Kirsty O’Connor, young people and adults living in the Outer Hebrides are invited to explore what matters to you and your community about the sea, and how we can protect it for generations to come.
Activities are designed to be accessible to all ages, abilities and backgrounds, and include stamp making, writing, storytelling, and film.

These activities are being run in collaboration with the MarPAMM project and Creative Carbon Scotland.
MarPAMM is an environment project to develop tools for monitoring and managing a number of protected coastal marine environments in Ireland, Northern Ireland and Western Scotland. The project is supported by the EU’s INTERREG VA Programme, managed by the Special EU Programmes Body.
MarPAMM seeks to deliver stewardship of the Marine Protected Areas of the Outer Hebrides marine region, putting communities at the heart of the process of developing a management plan for MPAs. We hope this will help to build consensus on the future protection of our internationally important marine wildlife around the islands.
