The Centre for Island Creativity

University of the Highlands and Islands

(CIC) supports research, post-graduate taught learning and knowledge exchange across the wide diaspora of the highlands and islands of Scotland. A core value is the recognition that remote locations where creative practitioners and thinkers choose to have their studio or production base are each a centre of research and graduate learning.
