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.’
