'We Gather By the Light of the Flickering Screen' Film Screening for Refugee Week

Gather by the light of your computer screen for a live discussion and film screening of this heart-warming nautical tale of mermaids, pirates and cookie monsters that will have the whole family enthralled. Starring members of CWIN’s online social and craft group, the glitchy format of Zoom is turned on its head to create a hilarious show for kids and adults alike.

Throughout the pandemic, this online group has engaged families and individuals undergoing the asylum process in Glasgow, providing a chance to relax and enjoy some creativity amid the challenges of lockdown. Facilitated by theatre-maker Marie Hamilton and artist Felicity White, the group created puppet characters and storylines. A public storymaking session in Queens Park also provided inspiration for the play, and created a link between the group and the wider Glasgow community during lockdown.

Within the play comes the message - don’t let fear rule the way you approach people who are different to yourself. You never know what pleasant surprises you might discover...! Event Link https://youtu.be/ruRNijRcERs

'A Thread is a Journey' Exhibition for Refugee Week Scotland

Central and West Integration Network (CWIN) and The Glasgow School of Art have partnered on a 10-week creative project exploring textiles, fabric and patterns. Working with designer Christopher McEvoy, the group has learned skills in creating different textiles, printing, weaving and embroidery.

Inspired by each others cultures, they have developed their own fabric designs. All the sessions have been held remotely over Zoom which has brought both interesting challenges and fun experiences. Join us in person at our outdoor exhibition at Garnethill Multicultural Centre to see the final artworks that have been created including a co-designed printed CWIN cloth.

You do not need to register for this event.

The location of this event is:
Garnethill Multicultural Centre, 21 Rose Street, Glasgow, G3 6RE
