About this Event

Andrew Redmond Barr

Written in 1320, the Declaration of Arbroath was a diplomatic letter asking for Scotland to be recognised as an independent kingdom. It is one of the earliest expressions of the concept of freedom and Scottish identity – and now it’s getting a make-over.

One month before the Declaration of Arbroath’s 700-year anniversary, artist and writer Andrew Redmond Barr presents his creative response to this famous Scottish document. Showcasing his new book, The Illustrated Declaration of Arbroath, Barr discusses the process of interpreting this historic letter, and makes the case for a more creative approach to Scottish history
