Tiree in your words is a collaborative project with Fiona Dix. The aim was to involve as many people as possible in a project that reached across all community sectors. In November 2012 we asked people to tell us what Tiree meant to them in up to six words. Other opportunities for participation included papier mache box making events, and a Box Opening Event to record all the words and set up a public exhibition. 143 people took part and we collected almost 900 words. For the full list and word clouds showing the most common words visit the project blog.
The results were uplifting, sad, facinating and shocking but mostly a refreshing view on what Tiree means to the people who live here.
