Seeing things

What: Refugee Festival – Knitting A Community and Museum without a Home

When: Monday 18th June, 12:30 – 5pm

Where: Garnethill Multicultural Centre, then subway to Glasgow City Chambers

Who With: Freya

Why should you join us: We will be going to the Garnethill Multicultural Centre to join Knit for Unity: Across the Globe to share stories of movement and knitting as part of Refugee Festival Scotland. The group is exploring Scotland’s needlework heritage with Mrs Magooty, a bead and craft shop who run creative workshops. Knitting needles and wool will be provided to make a square, and we will get some light refreshments here.

Then we will head down to Cowcadden’s subway station and get the subway one stop to Buchanan Street and walk round to Glasgow City Chambers to see the exhibition ‘Museum Without a Home’. Museum Without a Home is an award-winning free exhibition promoting solidarity with migrants. Originally shown in Athens, it has since travelled the world, and exhibits real objects that were donated to people in need of protection, to comfort them and help make the difficulties of daily life more manageable.
