Global stories, local action: echoes from home


When: June 23, 2017

Centre for Contemporary Arts

350 Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow G2 3JD

In celebration of the Refugee Festival Scotland join Global Justice Glasgow and Take One Action Film Festival for a special screening of three films, followed by an audience conversation, exploring how we can support refugees, asylum seekers and migrants locally and globally.

The evening’s films are:
Making it Home – a film created from dialogue between refugee women in Maryhill, Glasgow and local women in Pilton, Edinburgh.

At Home in the World – a moving portrait of five children during their first year at a Red Cross Refugee School in Denmark.

Refugee Blues – an intimate portrayal of a day in the former camp at Calais, set to the verses of W.H. Auden’s 1939 poem of the same name.

Join us after the film for a conversation with representatives from Scottish Refugee Council, Refugee Survival Trust and Global Justice Glasgow.
