Gypsy / Travellers in Scotland
Sunday, 8th September â€“ Sunday, 15th September
Nairn Community & Arts Center, King Street, Nairn
Moving Minds is an exhibition created from an anthology of work composed by Gypsy/Travellers across Scotland. In an open, honest and often humorous way, this exhibition shares their memories, poetry and photographs and reflects on the impact prejudice can have upon wellbeing.
“Moving Minds is the perfect antidote to My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding: full of memories, stories and images from several lifetimes on the road… The stories piece together a difficult but vibrant culture too few understand or respect. Moving Minds does what it says on the tin.”
Lesley Riddoch, Journalist and broadcaster
Author Jess Smith, herself from a Traveller family, will talk about her books – which focus on the experiences of Scottish Travellers – on Thursday, 12th September
Facilitated by MECOPP, Scotland’s leading Black and Minority Ethnic carers organisation.
