Community Conference

Conference Fee Waiver for Islanders 

To encourage local participation in this conference we will offer free places to island residents from the Gaelic Crisis study area. We do ask islanders to register on the conference website, however, to allow the organisers to plan appropriate hospitality for the event. Follow tinyurl.com/rootedlanguagepolicy, click on Tickets, and choose the conference bursary option.

Virtual participation in the conference 

The Soillse team will provide technical options for those wishing to participate in the conference virtually.

Travel Bursaries 

Soillse will make a limited number of travel bursaries available for island residents (outwith Lewis) to help defray travel costs. Please enquire with the conference organiser about this: conference2022@soillse.ac.uk
