Website Northword project
Northword is managed in Scotland by RGU and UHI.
The Northword project is calling for creatives to develop new products or works inspired by the heritage of Scotland’s Highlands and Islands.
The project has collected a bank of stories that celebrate the history, archaeology, traditions, folklore, landscape and environment of Scotland’s Highlands and Islands. They now invite creative practitioners based in the Highlands and Islands to apply for one of eight £1700 grants to develop a prototype product or work with one of these stories at its heart. The possibilities are wide ranging and potential products include textiles, ceramics, crafts, jewellery, art, music, film, photography, dance and theatre. Contributions in English, Gaelic or Scots are all welcome.
Both the stories and the resulting products will then be promoted on a bespoke Northword website and app to an international market. The Northword project is co-funded by the Northern Periphery and Arctic Programme of the European Union.
