Countries

Scots have migrated right across the globe. Whilst the Diaspora Tapestry has no wish to limit the future embroidered telling of their exciting stories, decisions had to be made for the first cohorts. Prestonpans two foundation Diaspora artworks with Gothenburg in Sweden and Barga in Italy are being followed by 25 other countries. It is planned that all 27 will be completed by Scotland’s 2014 Homecoming. Within each country just one or two communities have been selected but there is scope for many more to be added in the years ahead. Any Scottish Diaspora Community across the globe wishing to join, which has a fine story to tell, and embroiderers to create the artwork, should contact the Project Leaders by email here
