The Cancer Tapestry

Project: Non-funded project

Project Details


Novel Art project creating a Tapestry on cancer, aiming to educate general public, and raise awareness on this common and diverse disease. The Cancer Tapestry was born when Andrew Crummy, Scottish artist and creator of the Great Scottish Tapestry, as well as cancer survivor, decided to create a tapestry to discuss all aspects of cancer: from science, to all aspects of care. Dr Nixon was Andrew's oncologist and is a member of the cancer tapestry committee.
The first stitch was put by Jeanne Freeman, in the Scottish Parliament, on the 4th February 2019. Since then several panels have been created.
