Art of dialogue
TROUBLED arts organisation Comar, based on Mull, is holding an open recruitment process for a new convenor and board members after a walk out of members earlier this month.
In a statement, the Comar board members said they were keen to work with a ‘shadow board’ set up to oppose plans to make redundant two of the organisation’s highly regarded arts directors, Alastair McCrone and Gordon MacLean.
A Comar spokeswoman said they had halted the redundancy process.
She said: ‘ This includes the commitment to suspend any further action on the ongoing redundancies to allow the Comar board and the shadow board to continue a constructive dialogue about how to build a strong, sustainable future for the arts in Mull, Iona and Argyll.’
