Contemporary Scottish Gaidhlig social bonds are formed and given meaning through ceilidean (arts performance and participation gatherings) and feisean (Gaidhlig arts tuition workshops). These social forms are a locus for creating community and serve as a place in which to negotiate the meanings of identity and tradition. While some of these meanings stand in opposition to the diversity of cultural icons and images portrayed by Gaidhlig promotion and revitalization agencies, each takes its place as a legitimate and viable expression of Scottish Gaidhlig community and association.
