To coincide with the Scottish International Storytelling Festival Stories Without Borders programme of events which runs from Friday 23 October to Sunday 1 November, Dovecot displays a series of tapestries and rugs from 9 October to 5 November and hosts a traditional storytelling event to be held in the gallery space on Saturday 24 October. Dovecot joins other Edinburgh Partners including Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh, Scottish National Portrait Gallery and National Library of Scotland to celebrate traditions and cultural diversity.
The Scottish International Storytelling Festival is organised by TRACS (Traditional Arts and Culture Scotland) which brings together the Storytelling, Traditional Music and Traditional Dance Forums of Scotland from its base at the Scottish Storytelling Centre. The Festival is supported through Scottish Government’s Edinburgh Festivals Expo Fund, Creative Scotland, City of Edinburgh Council, and Festivals Edinburgh.
