During 2021, Moray-based artists Lynne Strachan and Mary Bourne developed an arts project in The Cabrach, a remote upland area just on the Moray side of the border with Aberdeenshire.
Over the summer they explored the area on foot – alone, together and guided by people with local knowledge. There was a lot of chatting along the way with people they met on their walks, as well as with participants at the events they organised – a silver jewellery workshop, a metal casting workshop and photography and sketching walks.
The project’s aim was to find ways for people to reconnect with each other through arts activities and to get out and enjoy the stunning scenery and wildlife in the area, reconnecting with nature.
This exhibition explores some of the challenges facing the local community in The Cabrach, telling the story of its past, and its present – and inviting you to be part of its future.
