Moving Stories – 10 people, 10 experiences, one unmissable exhibition
A travelling exhibition exploring ten people’s experiences of interacting with the Scottish Parliament will open in Museum nan Eilean, Stornoway on Tuesday 3 August.
The exhibition includes the story of John Macleod, a native Gaelic speaker originally from Carloway on the Isle of Lewis, who successfully campaigned for new initiatives to support the future of the Gaelic language.
The interactive exhibition, which has already toured more than 1,000 miles around Scotland, combines photography, objects and audio-visual material.
Speaking ahead of the exhibition which explores ten personal experiences of Holyrood, Presiding Officer Alex Fergusson MSP said: “It’s wonderful that more than 100,000 people have already had the opportunity to see the ‘Moving Stories’ exhibition as it has toured around Scotland.
“This updated version of the exhibition shows how ordinary members of the public have worked with their Parliament in raising issues and bringing about positive change.
“There has been a fantastic public response to this exhibition so far and I hope our run in Stornoway will inspire even more people to use the Scottish Parliament as a positive force for change in their lives and communities.”
The Moving Stories Exhibition will remain at Museum nan Eilean until 31 August when it moves to Greenock.
