Share Your Views on Empire, Slavery and Racism in Scotland with Museums Galleries Scotland.

This project, sponsored by the Scottish Government, explores how the story of Scotland’s involvement in the transatlantic slavery, empire, and colonialism should be told using museum collections and museum spaces.

For more than 200 years, Scotland's economy was closely tied to imperial trade and conquest. People from all over Scotland were participants in and drivers of the British Empire, both at home and overseas as politicians, businesses, traders, settlers, colonial administrators, soldiers, missionaries and forced migrants.

The wealth generated from the systems of chattel slavery and colonialism enriched Scotland at the expense of the places which were colonised. The legacies of colonialism remain today.

Find out more about the project or click here to share your views. Complete the survey and you'll earn 150 Young Scot Rewards Points! When you redeem your points, you'll also be entered to win one of five £50 Love2Shop vouchers!
