An exhibition of information and art prepared with the input of the Gypsy Traveller community is on display in Finzean Village Hall on October 2.
‘What A Voice’ has been researched and produced by Article 12 in Scotland, a non-governmental organisation, in conjunction with young Gypsy Travellers, and is touring various locations across Aberdeenshire.
The free exhibition depicts the history and culture of the Gypsy Traveller community through a mix of words and images.
The exhibitions will generally be available to view during office hours unless otherwise stated.
Leader of Aberdeenshire Council, Councillor Jim Gifford, said: “I very much welcome this exhibition which provides interesting information on the Gypsy Traveller community and their historical role in Scottish culture.
“It is up to us as a council to challenge negative stereotypes about any sector of society and I hope that council staff, elected members and local residents make the time to view these exhibitions and think about the messages being promoted.”
Independents’ Co-ordinator Councillor Norman Smith added: “This is a very worthwhile project and I hope it will be very well received in all the locations it is displayed in across Aberdeenshire.”
