Ca Canny: a Workshop on Scotland’s Hidden Treasure
This course is about Scotland’s true pride: not the Imperial diaspora, the occasional inventor, Scottish whisky exports or Aberdeen’s extractive capital but home-grown, workers tactics, crafted by the Scottish underdog against terrible odds and transported throughout the world as an inspiration for the international working-class.
