What should the future be for Gaelic in Scotland? What would success look like in 2030?

Featuring expert contributions from Wilson McLeod, Professor of Gaelic at the University of Edinburgh, the singer Mary Ann Kennedy, and Professor of Modern Irish in NUI Galway, Tadhg Ó hIfearnáin, this half-day conference will explore the future for one of Scotland’s official languages.

Chaired by the Rt Hon Ken Macintosh MSP, Scottish Parliament Presiding Officer and Futures Forum Chair.

Please note that the working language for the event will be Gaelic as much as possible, but there will be simultaneous interpretation to English so it will be accessible to non-Gaelic speakers.
