Artists’ Exchange Programme

Colmcille developed a pilot scheme to establish an International visual artists’ exchange programme between the Gaeltachts of Ireland and Scotland. Two young artists of promise exchanged for a 3 month residency.

Marion MacPhee, a fine art printmaker from the Isle of Skye was resident at the newly completed artist-in-residence building, Teach an tSléibhe in Mín a Leá, and Caroline Patten a graduate of NCAD, Dublin, who also took part in the Togra Idirnáisiúnta d’Ealaín na Gaeltachta was resident at Taigh Chearsabhagh in Uist.
