Winter Season Development

ORGANISATION // Taigh Chearsabhagh
PROJECT // Winter Season Development
TOTAL PROJECT COST // £30,000
LEADER FUNDING PROVIDED // £15,000

Taigh Chearsabhagh is planning to create a series of events, interventions and new initiatives specifically designed to increase local/community involvement and create additional winter visitors to the Uists. The intention is to establish these in the annual tourism and event calendars, whilst also creating an engaging programme of activity for local communities. The interventions and initiatives will also look at how we can drive up commercial opportunities for local artists in the quieter months using digital technology and online galleries, exhibitions and virtual events. 

  

We strongly believe that this will –

• Increase tourism during the off-peak season

• Bring additional revenue to the local economy (accommodation, hospitality, spend per visitor)

• Create events with longevity, including an annual Arts and Heritage conference with a  Gaelic focus

• Increase sales for local artists and craftspeople using digital channels

• Create additional digital marketing and promotion opportunities all year round • Create renewed interest, engagement and involvement with local communities
