Preparations are now underway for this years Community Partnership Gathering on Saturday 4th November at one of the parks favourite community venues, the Millennium Hall in Gartocharn!
Our National Park area has a rich and diverse heritage ranging from its industrial past, famous people and legendary heroes, to its inspirational landscapes and Gaelic language. This years Gathering programme ‘Heritage; sharing experience, creating legacy’ is back with a heritage inspired twist; a daytime community event designed to inspire and develop collaborations around heritage across the park area.
2017 is a special year as it marks the 250th anniversary of the translation of the bible into Gaelic and at this event we will be celebrating the contribution of the local ministers across the park who were all involved.
Inspirational speakers, workshops & great networking!
Our programme this year will be a great way to connect with others and discuss heritage opportunities across the park, and with more time for workshops and networking (which we know you like) will leave you going home fully inspired!
Alongside local community projects and initiatives we are extremely delighted to be joined by key speaker Professor Donald Meek and live music from Scottish Gaelic singer Linda Macleod who are both currently involved in the new Community Partnership collaborative park wide project ‘Celebration of the Role of the National Park in the Gaelic Bible’ funded by Bord Na Gaidhlig.
We hope to also be joined by BBC Alba, more details to follow.
As well as a pop-up heritage exhibition and launch of a film being developed to accompany the project, we also have great networking, and delicious food from The Ginger Breadman!
