Bho Bheul An Eòin Exhibition

7 May — 2 July 2022, Grinnebhat Centre, Bragar /

An exhibition by Derek Robertson at the Grinnebhat Centre in Lewis which brings together language, nature and art!

From the Bird’s Mouth, Bho Bheul an Eòin, is naming the new.  Through a process of research and consultation, with advice from scientists, researchers and Gaelic writers, the project gives Gaelic names to these colonisers, and tell their story through poetry and prose.

The project will allow Scots Gaelic speakers and learners to give voice to the new nature around them and maintain Gaelic’s rich, cultural link with the changing ecology of the landscape in which it is embedded.

This exciting partnership project features award-winning and highly-acclaimed wildlife artist Derek Robertson, with support from NatureScot (formally Scottish Natural Heritage) and Bòrd na Gàidhlig. The project advisors are from a wide variety of agencies and the names created will be submitted to their database archives.

We are delighted to see this exhibition visiting the Outer Hebrides and encourage everyone to go along and enjoy this fascinating project!
