Through Uiseag, I have worked with designers, writers, distilleries and public bodies, among others, to further their use of Gaelic heritage. It’s a niche job, and one I really care about. If you are interested in Gaelic culture or heritage and want to collaborate, get in touch: uiseagheritage [at] outlook [dot] com.
In my day job, I work for a heritage charity. I trained as an archaeologist and worked as such for a wee while before moving into community heritage and museums work across Scotland. Aside from Gaelic heritage, I’m especially interested in archaeology in museums and engaging folk with their surrounding heritage, whatever that might be.
I’m a member of the Museums Association, Scottish Museums Federation and Association for Heritage Interpretation.
Here are some of the folk I’ve worked with most recently and what I’ve done for them:
Research and Gaelic cultural context for different designs and Buachaille yarn research & pronunciation work.
Contributed an essay on Gaelic in the landscape to the beautiful publication Inspired by Islay.
Guidance, research and overall direction for Gaelic on a bilingual learning mini-site.
Ongoing collaborations with Claire at DaisyBisley, providing terminology and heritage context for Claire’s designs. She also designed me the lovely logo you can see at the top of this page.
This episode features myself talking specifically about Gaelic in the landscape, though I provide context and pronunciation advice for the host across many different episodes. Mountain is an excellent podcast – do have a listen.
