This summer might have been a wash out in Skye but it hasn't stopped us gathering on shorelines, sharing food and stories, and enjoying being together. Over the next months our summer programme continues with activities on the water, residency partnerships, and open sessions on the Making Publics Press. And if you're looking for some summer reading, A Person Is Not An Individual, from The School of Plural Futures, is now available online as a free PDF. 

Looking forward to seeing you in the ATLAS office or on the shore over July, hopefully the sun will join us too!

This summer we have a series of activities on and by the sea as part of a new project From Plockton to Portree with Malcolm Mackenzie. 

In June, two imaginary rowing boats appeared on the shore in Plockton and Portree to mark the launch of the project. Over the next months we will continue hosting events in each location. Keep an eye on our socials for updates and get in touch if you're interested in getting involved or want to find out more. 

Harbour writing and observation workshops

19th July in Portree Harbour 10.30am – 16.00, book here.

27th July in Plockton 10.30am – 16.00, book here.

Sign up for a day of rowing and writing with Ania Boryslawska and Malcolm Mackenzie. We’ll be exploring how time spent on and by the water can shift our perspectives and encourage different ways of thinking, doing and being through a series of guided observation, writing and filming exercises on the shore and in the harbour, on a Plockton Local Boat.
