This six-day programme will take you on a journey, beginning by exploring cultural identity and reflecting on how this shapes our creative activities. We will create a peer group of young creative leaders, who can support and stimulate each other on their enterprise journeys.
The aim is to build innovative and successful communities, at the heart of which are enterprises anchored by Gaelic language and culture.

Culture is how we make sense of the world around us. When we engage in creative activities – music, art, writing, drama – this reflects our own culture.
Who is it for?
Young Gaelic speakers (age 16-30), who have an interest in utilising their language and culture to create an enterprising future for their communities.
