Threads - Snáithean

Edau  Fil  Fios  Hariak  Snáitheanna steudadoù  triedden

Threads - Snáithean is a series of digital seminars, where all of us working in the smaller cultures of Europe can share perspectives, refine and develop our ideas, sharpen skills and collaborate on new activities.  

Each seminar group will have a convenor and rapporteur, will meet monthly online, and will begin work this November.  We hope they’ll reach some conclusions to their discussions, and proposals to take them further, by the end of March 2021.  


We’ll publish and disseminate these findings online in April, and hope we’ll be able to come together for a proper gathering in Inverness in June 2021. Your threads will help make up a tapestry - and a whole new raft of community-led cultural collaborations in the smaller languages.


Please join us now - just email Meic Llewellyn our co-ordinator via <> asap to register your interest.  We’ll update the list of groups and participants each week.
