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.
I am a felt artist living on the Isle of Arran and am part of the Arran Art Trail, welcoming locals and visitors to my studio. I am excited to be collating the stories of this island as I realise that stories are very important to the people of Arran.
Steeped in history and legend there are intriguing tales of fairies and folklore as well as modern day story tellers who love to share their memories (and imagination) to help us understand the social history and the characters that make the island so special to so many.
