The Columba Project

We would really like to hear your views about an exciting development for St. Columba’s by the Castle church.

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.

You are warmly invited to participate in the plans of the project by completing this short questionnaire.
