Spirit of the Highlands – what is it?
Is it the land? The people? The sights, sounds and smells?
All of these…and more…
The spirit is captured in its stories

Supported by the Highland Place Partnership through Creative Scotland Place Partnership funding, Spirit:360 is a new commissioning programme for emerging and established creative professionals – writers, musicians, filmmakers, visual artists, and others – to create new work inspired by local stories that reflect the theme ‘Spirit of the Highlands’.

Commissions of up to £1,000 are being made available to creative professionals based within, or originally from, The Highland Council area, and successful commissions will be showcased on a new online platform alongside the story which has inspired the work.

Applications to the Spirit:360 commissioning programme closed on Friday 30th July 2021 and the successful creative professionals have now been informed. We look forward to showcasing their creative journeys very soon.

If you are a creative professional interested in the Spirit of the Highlands project and would like to be kept up to date with any future commissioning opportunities for those based both within and outwith the Highland Council area, please use the link below to register interest.
