The Diaspora Tapestry is a project of Prestoungrange Arts Festival in Prestonpans, Chairman Andrew Crummy, who is also designer of the tapestry panels themselves.
All initial funding has come from the Barons Courts of Prestoungrange & Dolphinstoun and volunteers, prototyping pilot panels in Barga Italy and Gothenburg Sweden, and preparing applications for financial support. The demonstrated successes achieved have already attracted further support from the Barons Courts, the Scottish Government Diaspora Division, CreativeScotland, EducationScotland and EventScotland.
Tapestry co-ordinators across the globe are Yvonne Murphy and Gillian Hart with Kristine Cunningham responsible for Media and Events.
The formal public launch will take place in neighbouring Edinburgh towards end June 2012 once the community’s 7th 3 Harbours Arts Festival has taken place in Prestonpans, Cockenzie and Port Seton – June 2nd/ 10th.
