Event info

Refuge Garnethill
An exploration of the rich heritage of Garnethill through the eyes of refugees and asylum seekers – the ‘New Glaswegians’

An exhibition exploring themes of heritage, culture and home through photographs taken by students from St Aloysius Church’s ESOL classes. Coming from a diverse range of countries, the students have explored what these themes mean to them in their new home of Glasgow. With the aim of growing language, creativity and self-confidence, the photographs have been taken through a series of workshops with photographer Betty Meyer and supported by research into the history and heritage of Garnethill with ESOL tutors.

This project is a collaboration between St Aloysius Church and The Glasgow School of Art, funded by The Heritage Lottery Fund.

The exhibition continues at the Mitchell Library from 16th – 22nd September and at the Tenement House from 1st October – 30th November.
