Deeds Not Words – 100 years of the Rural

This exhibition ran in the temporary exhibition space in the museum at John Gray Centre in 2017.

As the Scottish Women’s Institute reached it 100th year the exhibition celebrated the history of this East Lothian born organisation. Looking at its history, future and the people who played a part, the exhibition hoped to demonstrate that there is much more to ‘The Rural’ than the traditional jam and crafts.
