Creative Conference (360G-BNG-2324_3039)

North Lanarkshire Council seek funding to deliver a Gaelic creative conference. This is to promote the Gaelic language and culture to all education establishments in the authority. It is hoped that by sharing information, resources and showcasing the support available for Gaelic teaching, Head teachers and education professionals will be encouraged to use and promote the language within their establishments. Whilst the conference will benefit current GME provision, the primary aim will be to promote Gaelic to education professionals and council staff that have yet to engage with the Gaelic language. We wish to provide cultural workshops as part of this project to inspire pupils, teachers, staff and parents to become involved. This will increase their knowledge and awareness of Gaelic. We want to end the conference by providing the community with the opportunity to listen to traditional Gaelic music performed by top quality musicians – it is hoped that this will inspire young people and residents to consider the option for Gaelic involvement amongst their families and friends. As a result of the conference, we intend to achieve higher engagement in Gaelic across all council sectors but particularly within English medium primary schools. It is hoped that by promoting the resources, support and opportunities available to schools that there will be an increase in the uptake of Gaelic as part of the MLPS 1 + 2 offering across the authority. We also hope to increase awareness of the link between North Lanarkshire and the Gaelic language. We aim to share information on all aspects of Gaelic with inclusion from a range of stakeholders in the Gaelic community. Our hope is that by hearing from individuals and organisations that are passionate about and committed to the Gaelic language and culture, we will create enthusiasm, excitement and a willingness to become involved in an essential aspect of Scottish culture and heritage.
