 Migrant Voice - Launch of Putting Ourselves in the Picture exhibition

Come to the launch of our Putting Ourselves in the Picture exhibition at the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum in Glasgow, on Saturday, 16 September 2023, 2-5 pm.

We’re proud to be collaborating with Glasgow Museums on this vital exhibition which aims to address the significant under-representation of migrants in Scottish heritage and capture Scotland’s history as it happens.

Reserve a spot here.

The exhibition, sharing photographs from two of Migrant Voice’s projects, creates a space where individual stories about moving to Scotland come to life. Alongside portraits of migrants by photographer Karen Gordon, there are also pictures taken by migrants themselves showing their experiences of settling in the city of Glasgow over a period of time.

Join us to celebrate this exhibition of sixty photos, showing a range of diverse experiences and lives, the impact of immigration on Scotland’s rich heritage, and the feelings of those migrants who have built their lives in the country. The exhibition will be showing at Kelvingrove for one year, alongside a public programme of seminars exploring curation and (under) representation of migrants, and stories from migrant communities.

The launch will include speeches from the UNESCO Chair in Refugee Integration Through Languages and Arts, Professor Alison Phipps, Migrant Voice Director, Nazek Ramadan and individuals portrayed in the exhibition.

Reserve a spot here.

Putting Ourselves in the Picture project is funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund. With thanks to National Lottery players.
