The Columba Project

We are planning to create an attractive and inspirational exhibition for the church. This would be open midweek and we hope would be enjoyed by both residents and tourists.

The starting point for the exhibition is the story of St. Columba, an important national figure. However, the idea is that the exhibition may lead each person to make their own small journey during the visit.

We would like to have a community art workshop to create an installation, to record a soundscape of Iona, to present Columba meaningfully and to write up a thorough history as a digital resource. A creative launch event is in the mix, as is developing a resource package for schools.

Thank you to everyone who completed our questionnaire about our proposed Columba Project. Your views will help shape how we take the project forward.
