May 30 - July 26 Exhibition Scottish Diaspora Tapestry

About the exhibition

This magnificent and inspiring tapestry has been embroidered in 34 countries across the globe to which Scots emigrated to create our diaspora and it is only fitting that this artwork should be as widely shared as possible. We are absolutely delighted to open the first complete exhibition of all 305 panels here in Veere.
