The Artist will have experience in working with other creative professionals and be able to collaborate where required with the Curator and the Design team to ensure the smooth integration of elements in identified locations within the building. We propose a welcoming and uplifting artwork as a focal point within the building. The atrium artwork will be significant in terms of its potential scale and in terms of its artistic ambition.

Eriboll Harbour & Shore Facility Market Research & Business Case – Durness Development Group Limited

Durness Development Group (DDG) was established in 2001 as a vehicle to promote and progress key strategic community developments within the geographical area defined by the Parish of Durness. There was a clear need for a community body to establish sustainable community led projects. DDG was born from this need and is a registered Scottish Charity and Company Limited by Guarantee. We work with and for the Community of Durness to enable our Parish to continue to be a sustainable and thriving place in which to live and work. Working in partnership with Highlands and Islands Enterprise we have employed two Local Development Officers to create our own sustainable action plan for the people of the Parish of Durness. Our main role is to act as the primary funding conduit and management organisation to enable the implementation of the Community Development Plan, which identifies key strategic needs within the community. For further information please see www.developingdurness.org

The next phase of work required is a comprehensive study of the markets this facility will serve and the preparation of a business case including financial projections. The research will explore the size and value of the potential markets for a harbour and shore facility on the shore of Loch Eriboll at Port Chamuill.
This work will establish the viability and sustainability of the proposed development.
Durness Development Group Limited (DDG) believe that there is a sufficient market to create a sustainable community owned harbour and shore facility at Loch Eriboll that would massively improve the resilience of the area and help to reverse the decline in population we are currently experiencing. The idea is born from a clear demand for safe and equitable access to this loch for both recreational and commercial use and the combined economic stability that this would create.
