Creating the space to build community by sharing our stories


What is Anam Alba?

dè a th’ ann an anam alba?

Anam Alba exists to create a space for building relationships and community as a salve to loneliness.

In shaping an environment which is warm, welcoming and safe there is a space for the creative discovery and expression of our own and each other’s stories.

Through our core pillars of creative, social, and health, our vision is to build community with each other, in our neighbourhoods, on our doorsteps, and through the world alike.

Our vision

ar sealladh

Our Vision is to use the creative arts to restore embodiment post-Covid.  We want to help people rediscover a sense of being grounded within themselves and in their surrounding relationships.   We will create spaces and opportunities for people to connect, sharing their stories and build community. We want to help people restore confidence, worthiness and value. Creative activities resonate with the embodied self. This ignites a sense of aliveness which in turn nurtures the innate desire to be in mutually, purposeful and fulfilling relationships with others.

We are not focused on making you feel better, we are focused on helping you to be better at feeling.

We want people to find the singer, the musician, the artist, the performer, the writer, the story-teller in themselves. We will facilitate jobs and projects for young people where they will work together and use their enthusiasm and talent to draw people of varying backgrounds and generations together.

As we create these opportunities, we will celebrate and share those experiences.  We will encourage the growth of supportive friendships and the formation of intergenerational communities, where embodied Joy is a salve to the loneliness in the world today.


We’ll go on this journey, together.

We are all entitled to tell our story, to understand our own life, who we are and what we have experienced irrespective of background, age or status. Each one of us is entitled to explore how, and why, we make sense of the world around us the way we do. Understanding our own behaviour and our own patterns, thoughts, feelings and health is a fundamental right for all.

What makes you happy? What makes you sad? What makes you feel afraid? What makes you feel safe?

Each and every person, by virtue of being alive, moves through life wondering, exploring, reaching, making choices regardless of circumstances or geography. Such wisdom, insight, intuition and compassion are the property of all.

Our mission at Anam Alba is to make accessible to you the tools and resources that may help you to make sense of and explore your own life story.
