Gaelic Arts Agency
Pròiseact nan Ealan (PNE), or the Gaelic Arts Agency, is the national development agency for the Scottish Gaelic arts.
Established in 1987, PNE is a non-profit limited company (company number: SCO166105) and a registered charity (charity number: SCO24912). PNE currently employs 5 full-time members of staff, who receive support for specific projects from freelance staff and volunteers as and when required.
The organisation is overseen by a board of directors who are responsible for high-level decision making and governing the overall direction of the organisation. PNE’s aim is to be the strategic agency for Gaelic arts development and to be passionate about promoting the importance of Gaelic language and culture within a modern, vibrant and confident Scotland.
We are based in Stornoway on the Isle of Lewis, and while our remit is largely Scottish-based, our work often takes us further afield to other European countries, Canada and the USA. PNE initiatives have received many awards over the last 10 years
