Crofting Connections Cafe

From next week, the children at Small Isles’ Primary will be running a cafe where they aim to find out more about the heritage and culture of crofting from the local community. Jura Lives (the oral history project on the island), and the Ionad Chaluim Chille Ile have been on board to help with the themes, technologies, Gaelic language and displays that the cafe will use as the older and younger generations interact. On May the 15th we’ll be comparing life as a child, then on May 22nd we’ll discuss croft kitchens over some home baking; on May 29th it’ll be the life of the land and the final session will examine crofting culture and ceilidhs. Here is a link to some of the children’s preparatory work about their own memories, created with help from Jura Lives and the project’s equipment.
