Taisbeanadh Ealain | Norge Exhibition

Open All Week During Business Hours

Comunn Eachdraidh Nis | Ness Historical Society

Anns an Òg-mhios 1904, sheòl an SS Norge à Copenhagen le Iùdhaich às an Ruis agus às an Fhionnlainn. Gu mì-fhortanach, chaidh am bàta air na creagan faisg air Ròcabarraigh agus thòisich am bàta a' dol fodha. Fhuair cuid às le am beatha agus chaidh iad an toirt dhan ospadal ann an Steòrnabhagh.

While fleeing Tsarist oppression, 405 Russian Jews and Finns attempted to seek a new life in the United States. They set sail on the SS Norge only to find themselves in a living nightmare in the Atlantic Ocean when the ship hit rocks near Rockall and began to sink. This exhibition will tell the widely unknown true story of this tragic event.

Òraid: Daibhidh Gange | Talk: David Gange

19:30 - 21:00

Ionad Coimhearsnachd Sgìre Airidhantuim | Clan MacQuarrie Community Centre (Air-loidhne|& Online)

Anns an òraid seo, leis an sgrìobhadair is òraidiche Daibhidh Gange, bheir sinn sùil air coimhearsnachdan air a' chosta leithid Oighreachd Ghabhsainn aig cridhe ar n-eachdraidh, seach bailtean mòra ann am Breatainn agus Èirinn mar a bh' aig luchd-eachdraidh roimhe.

David Gange is a writer and lecturer who kayaked the Atlantic coasts of Britain and Ireland in 2016-17, including north Lewis. This talk explores these coasts in context, showing why David thinks we should look to Galson Estate to understand Britain and Ireland in the round. How can past, present and future be reimagined if historians place coasts like these, instead of cities, at the centre?
