WORLD PREMIERE LAUNCH OF INTERNATIONAL SCOTTISH TAPESTRY
IN PRESTONPANS


A magnificent new art treasure has been created in 25 countries around the world to tell tales of the lives and accomplishments of thousands of emigrant Scots across our diaspora. It’s a 150 panel embroidered tapestry known as The Scottish Diaspora Tapestry. It goes on display as a significant contributor to Homecoming 2014.

At its World Premiere and celebrations on Saturday May 31st some of those who helped stitch its panels from Australia, Canada, Southern Asia, Sweden and the Netherlands will be present as will East Lothian residents who themselves added panels . They’ll be joined and greatly thanked by the local team that led its creation. Chief amongst those is now ‘veteran’ tapestry designer Andrew Crummy and his two Stitching Coordinators Gillian Hart and Yvonne Murphy.

The grand opening is preceded on May 30th by message of congratulations from Scottish Cabinet Secretary for Culture, Fiona Hyslop MSP, who saw the work in progress on three occasions during 2012/ 2013, and a formal visit from her colleague Humza Yousaf MSP, Scotland’s Minister for International Development. He commented:

“I saw the early stitching of some of these beautiful panels when I was visiting India and Pakistan in 2013. To see them completed now, alongside the tales from so many other countries Scots have influenced is a double inspiration – not only for embroiderers who visit but also for what we Scots today can and maybe should seek to achieve ourselves. Its Scottish touring exhibitions will make an outstanding artistic contribution to our Homecoming Scotland 2014 Programme.

"We have been delighted in Government to give our wholehearted support to Andrew Crummy and his team and help fund this project from its very beginnings in 2011. It is an imaginative and powerful way to strengthen and develop our international links across the diaspora, and we encourage everyone who can to take the chance to see the tapestry as it tours Scotland this year.”


The Scottish Diaspora Tapestry is the second to be created in Prestonpans by the Prestoungrange Arts Festival. Since 1997 it has used all the arts on a grand scale from the tapestries to 60 murals and 4 totem poles, theatre, poetry, storytelling, living history re-enactments. The first tapestry depicting Bonnie Prince Charlie’s successful campaign that saw victory at Prestonpans in 1745 has already attracted over 250,000 visitors across Scotland, France and England including an 8 week display in Bayeux. Plans are afoot for that artwork, The Prestonpans Tapestry, to have a world class permanent home in the community alongside a Visitor Centre that ensures proper conservation and interpretation of the battlefield itself for generations to come.

The Scottish Diaspora Tapestry will spend 2015/ 2016 touring as many of the 25 countries that have contributed as possible with stitching groups playing hosts as it goes. When not on tour it will be available across Scotland for educational purposes and for display in Prestonpans’ arts hub at The Prestoungrange Gothenburg which is to be its residential home.

Volunteer embroiderers created the panels and the development, exhibition and other associated costs have been met by the Barons Courts of Prestoungrange & Dolphinstoun, Scottish Government, Creative Scotland, EventScotland’s Homecoming 2014 and Bord na Gaidhlig. Gaelic language guides have again be produced following the precedent set for The Prestonpans Tapestry with translations by Beathag Mhoireasdan.



CIAD FHOILLSEACHADH CRUINNEIL AIR GRČIS-BHRAT ALBANNACH ADAR-NŔISEANTA ANN AM PRESTONPANS

Tha ulaidh ealain ůr mhěorbhaileach air a cruthachadh ann an 25 diofar dhůthchannan air feadh an t-saoghail, ag innse sgeulachdan mu bheatha is euchdan nam měltean de dh’eilthirich Albannach tarsainn an diaspora againn. Is e sin grčis-bhrat a tha grčisichte le 150 pannal agus aithnichte fon ainm Grčis-bhrat Diaspora na h-Alba. Bidh e air a thaisbeanadh mar phŕirt shňnraichte de Thilleadh Dhachaigh 2014.

Aig an Fhoillseachadh Chruinneil agus na subhachasan a tha na lůib air Disathairne 31 Ceitean, bidh cuid den fheadhainn a chuidich le fuaigheal nam pannalan ŕ Astrŕilia, Canada, Ŕisia a Deas, an t-Suain agus an Ňlaind an lŕthair, děreach mar a bhios luchd-cňmhnaidh Lodainn an Ear a chuir pannalan ris cuideachd. Bidh an sgioba ionadail a chruthaich e sa chiad ŕite a’ cur fŕilte chridheil orra agus a’ toirt buidheachas dhaibh. Nam measg tha an dealbhaiche grčis-bhrat éňlach’, Anndra Crummy, agus an dŕ cho-ňrdanaiche fuaigheil aige, Gillian Hart agus Yvonne Murphy.

Air 30 Cčitean, an latha ron fhosgladh mhňr, cluinnear teachdaireachd agus meal-a-naidheachd bho Fiona Hyslop BPA, Růnaire a’ Chaibineit airson Cultar ann an Alba, a chunnaic an obair a’ dol air adhart trě tursan ann an 2012/2013, agus tadhal eile bho a co-oibriche Humza Yousaf BPA, Ministear Leasachaidh Eadar-nŕiseanta na h-Alba. Thuirt esan:

“Chunnaic mi am fuaigheal air cuid de na pannalan ŕlainn sin aig toiseach gnothaich nuair a bha mi a’ tadhal air na h-Ěnnseachan is Pagastan ann an 2013. Tha a bhith gam faicinn crěochnaichte a-nis taobh ri taobh nan sgeulachdan bho a leithid de dhůthchannan eile air an tug Albannaich buaidh, na bhrosnachadh důbailte – chan ann a-mhŕin a thaobh an luchd-ghrčise a tha a’ tadhal ach cuideachd airson nas urrainn agus ’s dňcha na bu chňir do dh’Albannaich an latha an-diugh a choileanadh sinn fhěn. Bidh an taisbeanadh air chuairt air feadh Alba am-bliadhna na chuideachadh ealanta air leth anns a’ Phrňgram Tilleadh Dhachaigh 2014 againn.

“Tha sinn air a bhith air leth toilichte san Riaghaltas ar lŕn taic a thoirt do dh’Anndra Crummy agus don sgioba aige agus cuideachadh le maoineachadh na prňiseict seo bho thňisicheadh oirre ann an 2011. Is e ňigh mhac-mheanmhainneach is chumhachdach a th’ ann air ar ceanglaichean eadar-nŕiseanta a neartachadh tarsainn an diaspora, agus tha sin a’ brosnachadh gach neach as urrainn cothrom a ghabhail air a’ ghrčis-bhrat fhaicinn fhad ’s a bhios e air chuairt Alba am-bliadhna.”


Is e Grčis-bhrat Diaspora na h-Alba an dŕrna grčis-bhrat a chaidh a chruthachadh ann am Prestonpans le Fčis Ealain Prestoungrange. Bho 1997, thathar air na h-ealain uile bho na grčis-bhratan a chleachdadh gu farsaing an lůib 60 dealbh-balla agus 4 pňlaichean tňtam, tro theatar, bŕrdachd, innse sgeulachdan, agus ath-achdachadh air cůisean eachdraidh beň. Tha a’ chiad ghrčis-bhrat a’ taisbeanadh iomairt shoirbheachail a’ Phrionnsa Theŕrlaich a chunnaic buaidh aig Sliabh a’ Chlamhain ann an 1745, air cňrr agus 250,000 neach-tadhail a tharraing bho air feadh Alba, an Fhraing agus Sasainn, a’ gabhail a-steach taisbeanadh 8 seachdainean ann am Bayeux. Tha planaichean an gněomh airson an obair-ealain sin, Grčis-bhrat Phrestonpans, a bhith ann an dachaigh mhaireannaich aig ěre chruinneil sa choimhearsnachd, a thuilleadh air Ionad Tadhail a bhios a’ dčanamh cinnteach ŕ glčidhteachas ceart agus eadar-mhěneachadh air blŕr a’ bhatail fhčin airson nan ginealach ri teachd.

Cuiridh Grčis-bhrat Diaspora na h-Alba 2015/2016 seachad air chuairt ann an uimhir ri 25 důthchannan a tha air cur ris mar-thŕ, leis na buidhnean fuaigheil a’ toirt aoigheachd dha mar a bhios e a’ dol air adhart. Nuair nach bi e air chuairt, bidh e ri fhaicinn air feadh Alba airson adhbharan foghlaim agus air a thaisbeanadh ann am mňr-ionad ealain Phrestonpans ann am Prestoungrange Gothenburg, a tha gu bhith na dhachaigh mhaireannaich dha.

Chruthaich luchd-ghrčise na pannalan agus an leasachadh orra gu saor-thoileach, agus tha cosgais an taisbeanaidh is na cosgaisean co-cheangailte eile air an coinneachadh le Cůirt Bharanan Prestoungrange is Dolphinstoun, Riaghaltas na h-Alba, Alba Chruthachail, Tilleadh Dhachaigh 2014 aig Tachartasan Alba agus Bňrd na Gŕidhlig. Tha iůil cŕnain air an toirt gu buil, a-rithist a’ leantainn air an eisimpleir a chaidh a stčidheachadh airson Grčis-bhrat Phrestonpans tro eadar-theangachaidhean le Beathag Mhoireasdan.
