Six Portree High School students spent time in Costa Rica, thanks to an EU-LAC-Museums exchange programme.
This project is part of continuing international EU funded youth exchange programme between Latin America and Europe, led by the University of St Andrews. Ceumannan, The Skye Ecomuseum, was identified as a partner due to its similarities to eco led museum projects in Costa Rica and Portugal.
With support from the Staffin Community Trust, The Aros Centre and Comunn na Gàidhlig this project will continue into 2018. Costa Rican students will come to Staffin and Skye to visit their Scottish counterparts.
The project is coordinated by School of Art History and Museum and Gallery Studies in the University of St Andrews. In Scotland, this project is supported by Staffin Community Trust, the Aros Centre Portree and Comunn na Gàidhlig.
Sìne Ghilleasbuig and Donald MacDonald have been a tremendous support helping to set up and establish the youth project.
