Event description
What is it like to live in Wester Ross? How can we describe the different aspects of our lives in words and pictures? Who are we?

About this Event

What makes Wester Ross, Wester Ross?

Is it the landscape? The people? The cultural heritage? What is it like to live here and what do we want to tell visitors about?

This workshop is all about thinking about our identity, both socially and how it relates to the places we live, especially around Kyle of Lochalsh, Glenelg and Lochcarron, but also in Wester Ross as a whole. Participants will do activities like brainstorming what words we use to describe the landscape, what groups we are part of and what it means to us. We'll write postcards as though we were on holiday here and think about what the area will be like in 10 years time.

Before you come, you can login to https://app.sli.do and enter the code #senseofplace to share your ideas on why in 10 years, Wester Ross is a great place to be...

This event is for everybody. It will be family friendly and relaxed, we will finish early (17:00) and some light refreshments will be provided. We particularly want to hear from you if you write poetry or create art/photography about the area.

Wester Ross Biosphere are taking part in a Northern European wide project called SHAPE* which is helping us to write a Destination Management Plan for the region. This will help us to set priorities for visitor management in the future.
