Campaign launched to raise funds for new Gàidhlig centre

Ceòlas has launched a crowdfunding campaign to raise £250,000 towards building a new £7m ‘centre for excellence’ for Gàidhlig culture on South Uist.

The Scottish Government granted Ceòlas £1million in December to help build the centre for Gàidhlig music, dance, language and cultural heritage at Cnoc Soilleir in Daliburgh – but its staff and volunteers now need to raise £250,000 from the public to demonstrate community support.

Ceòlas, a 21-year-old arts and education organisation, is described as ‘rooted within the Gàidhlig heartland of South Uist’, and a distillation of the island’s culture and heritage. Uist is recognised as the most vibrant Gaidhlig community in Scotland,’ its crowdfunder page explains, ‘a place where language, music and dance are essential components of our cultural heritage.’
