In-Person Event

Don Roberto & Scotland: International Perspectives


Saturday, May 11, 2024

10:00 am


Sunday, May 12, 2024

4:45 pm

The Stirling Smith Art Gallery & Museum (and other locations)

Two days of talks and visits celebrating the life, travels and vision of Robert Bontine Cunninghame Graham, hosted by the Cunninghame Graham Society and Stirling Smith Art Gallery & Museum.

Widely known as ‘Don Roberto’, Robert Bontine Cunninghame Graham (1852-1936) is best known as the co-founder, with Keir Hardie, of the Scottish Labour Party, forerunner of the modern Labour Party; and later as founding president of the Scottish National Party. But in a long and remarkable life he was also a prolific writer, horseman, traveller, adventurer, visionary, internationalist and humanitarian.

This two-day event brings together specialists in different aspects of his life and work to build a portrait of one of the most significant, yet overlooked, figures of late 19th and early 20th century Scottish political and cultural life; and to ask the question: what can we learn from him today about Scotland and the wider world?

The full weekend costs £33. Secure your ticket via Eventbrite.

For the full programme of events, head to the Stirling Smith Art Gallery & Museum website.

The weekend is organised by the Cunninghame Graham Society and hosted by the Stirling Smith Art Gallery & Museum. It is generously supported by Gartmore Village Heritage Society.
