Canada-UK Foundation Award Travel Grant to Aberdeen Student

The Fabric of Our Land - Salish Weaving Exhibition

Chris Martin received £1,000 to take part in the closing events of 'Fabric of our Lands'; an exhibition of Salish woven blankets from museums in America and Europe.

The Vancouver exhibition marks the first time many of the blankets have returned to Canada in over 150 years, and it is the first time the Perth blankets have been physically available to Salish weavers since they arrived in Scotland in 1833.

Chris will be reconnecting with First Nations groups to understand how the blankets are understood and significant historically and in the present day.

The grant is awarded twice per year, and is targeted at Doctoral Students and Academic Staff for projects relating to the continuing relationships between Canada and the UK.

Last chance to visit this exhibition is 15 April 2018
