- A Cultural Assembly for Argyll: the Case for taking Ourselves Seriously
@ClootieDumpling A talking shop or as @Simon has it “Much Ado About Nothing” is definitely the danger. Doing something which remains and is valued both by practitioners and audiences requires organisation – a legal vehicle – for the endeavour … that is the promise of the Cultural Assembly. And yes, given the length of time it has taken to get anything off the ground Argyll-wide in this sector an initial top-down approach is probably the only way to go. Locally initiatives like ArtMap Argyll and Cowal Open Studios work well, but to get a sectoral response to the need is not going to happen organically.

So the problem is with our spam filters and we are still working on it, so bear with us!
- Argyll and the Isles’ Secrets Collection: Castle Lachlan and Kilmorie Chapel
Great piece about a place close to me. The Strachur and District Local History Society have published a great book on the genealogical aspects of this which is available from http://www.strachurdlhs.org.uk/
- Andrew Argyle: Politicians’ fashions are changing – green is out, red is back
For those who have wondered about my views on renewables they are published on our new Nationhood piece published today. The quote from me in this thread is in relation to the news that our community had acquired the right to buy Stronafian Forest – a right we exercised in Feb this year. In that context I was referring to the opportunity that renewables offer communities with very little other way of creating an income. And of course that was in my role as chair of the Colintraive and Glendaruel Development Trust, rather than as founder of ForArgyll.com, which are two quite different and distinct roles. Hope that clarifies matters.
- Revelations galore at Cowal pro-union launch
In Newsroom’s absence: David Graham has this correctly. At no time in the article are any of the gentlemen named referred to as thugs. The use of the adjective ‘thuggish’ was not ascribed to any individual, but to unnamed SNP supporters’ behaviour.
