An Talla Solais
An Talla Solais was awarded funding of £26,154, to run from May 2018 to April 2019.
The Dolphin Project, run by An Talla Solais in Ullapool, brings people together for weekly art sessions to creatively support those affected by dementia.
This also supports the forging of friendships that help keep people in the heart of their community. Family members, friends, volunteers and artists make up the group which has had a high creative output - painting, drawing, moulding terracotta warriors, making paper lanterns from bending willow and rolling felt flowers to name a few.
They also hold regular sessions in the two care homes in the area, and have a monthly discussion in the gallery or museum where participants meet to talk about the work on display.
