Watch: Document Scotland – Show Us Colonsay

In May 2022, photography collective Document Scotland visited the Inner Hebridean island of Colonsay where they staged a week-long series of events under the title Show Us Colonsay. These included a community participatory project open to all islanders to take part in, a series of collaborative portraits of people on Colonsay made by the Document Scotland photographers and a closing-night Salon where the work made during the week was showcased to a live audience at the Heritage Centre. Show Us Colonsay was made possible by funding from Creative Scotland and was delivered in partnership with the Colonsay and Oransay Heritage Trust and Street Level Photoworks.
