As we close the ATLAS office for the holidays we have been looking back at what has been another jam-packed year of inspirational projects and events. We are looking forward to 2019 and bringing you a new, exciting programme.

We wish you all the very best this festive season,
Shona, Suzy and the ATLAS board
Marking 100 years of women's suffrage
To mark 100 years since many women received the right to vote in the UK, much of our programme this year focussed on women. We partnered with Scalarama to show Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story, Mahogany Too by Akosua Adoma Owusu, and one of the earliest films ever made, La Fée aux Choux (The Cabbage Fairy) by Alice Guy-Blaché. We marked Margaret Tait's centenary with a special SCREEN-IT event, and hosted a Wikipedia Edit-a-thon adding and editing entries of women of Skye to the online encyclopedia to address the gender imbalance.

New ATLAS Arts director 
We said farewell to our director, Emma Nicolson, in November as she departed Skye to become head of exhibitions at the Royal Botanic Garden, Edinburgh. Following a recruitment process, we are excited to say we will be announcing the new director of ATLAS Arts in early 2019. 
CLIMAVORE: On Tidal Zones, Education Programme
In partnership with Portree High School and chefs around the island, Cooking Sections will deliver five workshops with Home Economics department. Following a celebratory meal prepared by the students and served at the oyster table, we will offer a series of fully-funded summer apprenticeships with restaurants and cafes across the island where the students will develop their skills and promote the CLIMAVORE ethos.
We are also working with Skye-based artist Philippa Thomas to deliver a project with Portree Primary School looking at the tidal zone, the oyster table in Bayfield and the projects' themes.
SCREEN-IT at Portree High School
As part of our SCREEN-IT programme, we will be working with a group of Portree High School students to learn more about filmmaking and sound recording. Looking at a variety of artists' short films as inspiration, the students will make their own short film and develop an original film soundtrack.
