Wednesday 11th July – Saturday 6th October
Temporary Exhibition: Scottish Diaspora Tapestry
Scots have migrated all over the world and have often had a profound impact on the areas where they settled. The Scottish Diaspora Tapestry project brings together stories from such communities, documenting their Scottish connections in more than 300 embroidered panels. Some of these panels will be displayed in the downstairs gallery at Garioch Heritage Centre on their way home from their world-wide tour. It is a remarkable and heart-felt homage to the determination, courage and achievement of Scottish migrants and their descendants across the centuries.
Tuesday 17th July
