The heARTof ARGYLL Arts and Heritage Festivals 2012 and 2013 have been made possible through an innovative partnership between the Heart of Argyll Tourism Alliance, Artmap Argyll, Lanterns @10 and Kilmartin House Museum. This partnership is growing in strength and we are exploring exciting ideas for 2014 including securing a permanent arts space in the local area devising an arts trail along the Crinan Canal.

We have received generous funding support from Creative Scotland and the Lottery, Argyll & Bute Council and Scottish Canals and significant in kind support from our members and local partners. We look forward to welcoming visitors and locals to our programme in 2013.
