Claiming Back The Narrative: A Photo Voice Exhibition

 Date and time:           20th June - 25th June, 2019

At:                                  Kelvingrove Museum and Art Gallery, Glasgow

 The exhibition is the showcase of a collaborative project undertaken in Glasgow in 2016 by Refuweegee, LIVED and students from Edinburgh University. Seven recently arrived individuals were asked to capture their experiences of living in Glasgow as a refugee, using disposable cameras, journals and art supplies. Participants were invited to document and describe their hopes and aspirations, sense of home and belonging, and emotional lives after arriving. The aim of this exhibition is to give a voice to the refugees who have settled here. As part of the Scottish Refugee Festival, we will be launching to the public at Kelvingrove Museum and Art Gallery, on World Refugee Day, on the 20th June for 5 days.
