Taking place on an uninhibited island in the North West Scotland called Eilean Shona, Shona Projects creates a unique learning experience for a group of participants who come from a range of backgrounds.
In response to current socio-political unrest, this one-week residency utilised the remote environment of Eilean Shona to explore the charged idea of ‘safe space’. The week long programme was intended - not as a comprehensive examination of what we consider to be 'safe space' - but rather as a series of provocations from selected contributors who will considered the term within different specialisms, experiences, environments and communities.
As well as time and space to develop individual ideas, participants where invited to take part in workshops, activities, talks and discussions led by contributors to the programme
