Gather Connect Inspire

On May 14th and 15th Skye ATLAS Arts are running an arts event, Gather Connect Inspire, which aims to inspire creativity, create connections and exchange skills. Document Scotland are very pleased to have been invited, and Jeremy Sutton-Hibbert and Colin McPherson’s are excited to attend and participate.

On the morning of Thursday 14th Jeremy and Colin will show work by Document Scotland and other photographers who we have showcased on our website, and in the afternoon they will participate in workshops and be available for one-on-one portfolio sessions with local artists and photographers.
