Three new creative collaborations have been awarded the latest Iconic Artists in Iconic Places grants by Museums Galleries Scotland (MGS).

The funding enables The Scottish Fisheries Museum, Timespan and Gairloch Heritage Museum to work with artists who will draw inspiration from their collections and the history of their local communities. The projects will result in a number of exhibitions and events during 2013.

The Scottish Fisheries Museum in Anstruther, Fife, is looking to reacquaint its community with its heritage by creating installations in unusual venues. In March 2013, their 'Home from the Sea' project will temporarily re-site objects from the museum's collection to nearby houses and streets which have historical links with the men and women of the fishing industry.

Meanwhile, Timespan in Helmsdale will augment its Translocation 1813 - 2013 programme of events which marks the 200th anniversary of the Kildonan Clearances. Canadian-Scottish artist Anthony Schrag has been commissioned to explore the emotive themes associated with the Kildonan Riots which preceded the Clearances in January 1813.

Gairloch Heritage Museum will use the funding to host its first artist in residence for which applications are currently being invited. The residency will culminate in a community event next summer.

Joanne Orr, CEO of MGS, said: "Scotland's museum collections offer authentic and emotive sources of inspiration for so many. By enabling these collaborations between artists and museums, Iconic Artists in Iconic Places funding is forging real connections between communities, museums and their collections across the country."
