The Centre for Scottish Studies invites you to visit our brand new photographic exhibition produced to mark Canada's Tartan Day and Scotland Week for 2011.

"This Is Who We Are, Part 2. The Diaspora Lines" - created by Graeme Murdoch of Cultural Connect Scotland

Sponsored by the Scottish Government, the exhibition runs from 29 March until 4 April 2011. Located in the ground floor Coffee Lounge of the McLaughlin Library in the heart of the University of Guelph campus, the exhibition is free and open to the public.

The official launch is Tuesday 29 March at 3.30pm with a guided tour by the artist himself. All are welcome.

Come and meet Graeme Murdoch of Cultural Connect Scotland as he connects Scottish and Canadian towns with the same name and Scottish and Canadian people of various names: Hamilton, Banff and Calgary are just three of the featured places.

For a limited time only - and FREE. Come and make your diasporic connection...

LAND ACKNOWLEDGEMENT
The University of Guelph resides on the land of the Between the Lakes Treaty No. 3, the territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit. This land is part of the Dish with One Spoon, a covenant between Indigenous nations to live peaceably on the territories of the Great Lakes region. We recognize that today this gathering place is home to many First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples and acknowledging them reminds us of our collective responsibility to the land where we learn, live and work.
