6°WEST has received funding from Hi-Arts and Creative Scotland to
have an artist residency on the island of Inch Kenneth in June 2011 as part of the Year of Scotland’s Islands.

6°WEST has been given the unique opportunity to have complete access to Inch Kenneth house, archive and island by the Barlow family who own
the island.

Artist members of the collective taking part are artists Anne Devine,
David Faithfull, Mhairi Killin, Veronica Slater and curator Alicia Hendrick. Joining 6°WEST during part of the residency will be photographer. Shannon Tofts, art critic Georgina Coburn and art historian Murdo MacDonald.

All of the creatives taking part will be responding to this culturally
significant island, which has a fascinating history. An exhibition of the
developed work from 6°WEST’s residency will be shown as part of the Year of Scotland’s Islands and tour internationally.
