Grass roots story gathering is at the heart of COAST. 32 locals have been brought on board as story gatherers to reach out and encourage sharing and to gather material for our story bank. If you have a story to tell do please use our survey link but should you know of any important resources that would help our local story gatherers please use the appropriate form below to contact them. Some but not all of our story gatherers speak Gaelic.
After years out on the road in the Highlands and Islands gathering stories and recollections from among Scotland’s Gaels, I was just over the moon to hear about this project which will give me the opportunity to carry on with that very thing. I am both very grateful and looking forward immensely to starting the work.
