CREATIVE SCOTLAND

20 Jul 2013

A delegation from Creative Scotland is soaking up the HebCelt atmosphere as part of its ongoing work to support Scottish arts events.
Creative Scotland and its predecessor the Scottish Arts Council has supported the festival since it was established 18 years ago and visiting representatives Kirstin Macleod (government relations officer), Karen Dick (development partnership officer) and Helen Teeling (development officer and lead officer for HebCelt) were able to see the event is continuing to grow with ticket sales surpassing last year’s total.
They said as well as enjoying the music they were able to see first-hand the depth of talent that the festival showcases and the impact the event has on the islands, as well as the support it attracts within the community.
The uniqueness of the festival setting and its promotion of Gaelic culture and language were factors that the delegation said made HebCelt different from other festivals.
Kenneth Fowler, Director of Communications & External Relations at Creative Scotland, said: "We are delighted to be supporting Heb Celt again, in this it's 18th year. The festival is an annual highlight, not just for Stornoway and for Lewis but for the whole of Scotland and it goes from strength to strength.
“I'm delighted to see the focus on celebrating Gaelic cultural heritage at the festival this year alongside a potent mix of internationally renowned and up and coming performers.”
 
During their visit the delegation visited the Isles FM studio to talk about the festival and Creative Scotland’s support for it.
