Lesley Riddoch’s Nordic House Art Exhibition

About Lesley Riddoch’s Nordic House Art Exhibition

Exploring the links between Scotland and the Nordic nations, this exhibition showcases wild Arctic seascapes, Icelandic lava fields, Denmark’s oldest allotment gardens, women fishing on the Baltic, and a subsidence-threatened Swedish mining town.

Lesley Riddoch is a great admirer of the Nordic way of life, co-founding the think tank Nordic Horizons with Scottish Government funding in 2010. Her book ‘Blossom: What Scotland Needs To Flourish’ explores how the Nordic nations manage to attain top places in international league tables of productivity, wellbeing, health and GDP. Her latest book, McSmorgasbord, written with Eberhard Bort, explores what post-Brexit Scotland can learn from the Nordics.

The exhibition will be on display in the John Gray Centre from Monday 13 November until Sunday 17 December. There are times when the Star Room (where some of the items are on display) will not be accessible: please check with the library before your visit.

Venue: The John Gray Centre, 15 Lodge Street, Haddington EH41 3DX
