Highland Homecoming exhibition reaches Skye and Strathpeffer
“Needed on a Journey”– a special new Homecoming exhibition roving around the Highlands as part of Homecoming 2014 – reaches the next two stops on its travels this week as it arrives in the Skye & Lochalsh Archive Centre in Portree and at the Highland Museum of Childhood Museum in Strathpeffer.
The exhibition, which is part of the “My heart’s in the Highlands” Homecoming events programme, has been put together by High Life Highland. It is visiting various locations around the Highlands and exploring what those who left the Highlands took with them, from physical objects to things people carried in their minds such as stories, songs and recipes.
The exhibition is in in Strathpeffer from Monday 2- Monday 30 June and in Portree from Thursday 5 - Friday 27June.
“Needed on a Journey” is part of the “My heart’s in the Highlands” Homecoming 2014 project, a programme of special events at museums and heritage sites around the Highland and Moray Council areas exploring and celebrating what makes the Highlands special to people who live here, and to people around the world. Further details, including how to download the free new “Hearthighland” iPhone/iPad app with its calendar of over 200 events as well as a special feature allowing you to upload your thoughts and photos of the Highlands, can be found on http://www.hearthighland.org/.
“My heart’s in the Highlands” is being run by the Highland and Moray Museums and Heritage Partnership, a new group bringing together The Highland Council, High Life Highland, the Highland Museums Forum, Moray Heritage Connections and the National Trust for Scotland.
The project has received funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund, Museums Galleries Scotland, the Highland Culture Fund, The Highland Council, the Highland Museums Forum and the National Trust for Scotland.
