ABOUT US

PARTICIPATE - APPRECIATE - CELEBRATE

With support from Highlands & Islands Enterprise, a consortium of organisations has come together to create new projects and raise the profile of the arts and cultural activity in Ullapool in the North West Highlands. An Talla Solais, Fèis Rois, The Macphail Centre, Ullapool Book Festival and Ullapool Museum will work under the banner of Creative Ullapool from July 2014 onwards. The five key partners will also work closely with other artists and other organisations in the village.

Creative Ullapool Consortium wants to be all inclusive and if you wish to find out more about people who live and work in Ullapool please click here.

Ullapool Visual Arts

An Talla Solais (‘the hall of light’) is Ullapool’s centre for the visual arts. An Talla Solais runs an annual programme of exhibitions showing contemporary art from near and far, offers studio and workshop space for artists and groups to make art in, and runs a collection of events and classes to enable local communities and visitors to engage with art. An Talla Solais also hosts Market Street Arts, an independent shop selling art and crafts made in the highlands. We’re open from Wednesday to Sundays from Easter to October; please visit www.antallasolais.org for more details.

Fèis Rois

Fèis Rois

Fèis Rois aims to create transformative opportunities for people of all ages to celebrate and engage with traditional music and the Gaelic language.

The organisation’s vision is to see:
• Everyone living in Ross-Shire, and indeed across Scotland, having the opportunity to access and participate in the traditional arts
• The traditional arts transforming communities and contributing to the economy
• Scotland’s traditional arts recognised internationally

Fèis Rois provides opportunities for people of all ages to learn skills in the traditional arts, as well as encouraging cross art form collaboration, innovative contemporary practice and the use of digital technology.

In Ullapool, people can get involved in weekly classes and sessions taking place in Ullapool Primary School and The Ceilidh Place on Mondays, as well as three annual residential courses held in April (for primary school aged children), May (for adults) and October (for young people of secondary school age).

The Macphail Centre

The Macphail Centre runs a year round arts events programme. We aim to have something for everyone and a real treat is in store for you when you come to our performances, workshops and exhibitions.

The quality and diversity reaches from the National Companies out on tour to home grown young people’s drama group productions that could have you laughing all the way home; changing exhibitions include painting, textiles to informative panels on our natural world , local photographs that remind you of your past.

In addition we provide opportunities for learning with workshops and classes, perhaps to try out something new out or to enhance and improve your skills.

Ullapool Book festival

Ullapool Book festival

Ullapool Book Festival invites writers and audiences to celebrate literature in all forms during a weekend in May that is inspiring, thought-provoking and entertaining. The festival features fiction, non-fiction and poetry and includes work in Gaelic and Scots. A tradition has developed that sees the festival invite a Canadian author each year. UBF also promotes literature at other times throughout the year.

Ullapool Museum

Ullapool Museum

Ullapool Museum tells the story of the people of Lochbroom – local history, fishing, crofting, emigration, family history and more.

Housed in a recently refurbished Grade A1 listed “Thomas Telford Church”, built in 1829, Ullapool Museum is an architectural gem. Retaining many of its original features, the building alone is worth a visit. With regularly changing exhibitions and events, enthusiastic volunteers and staff, we play an important part in the cultural life of Ullapool.

We have full accredited status with Museums Galleries Scotland and are a registered charity SCO 18225. Follow our activities on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest, and contact us on curator@ullapoolmuseum.co.uk. Open April – October, Monday – Saturday.
