This welcoming event accompanies the Rights in Action exhibition, created by people seeking asylum who are now living in Scotland. There will be poetry, music, discussion, food and much more! Everyone is welcome to come along to view the exhibition, express your feelings and find out more about the research findings.

The Rights in Action exhibition is very personal. People seeking asylum, now living in Scotland, express feelings of isolation, depression and anxiety through their own words and photographs. Images range from beautiful personal art to Glasgow landscapes.

As part of Rights in Action, Maryhill Integration Network partnered with the Poverty Alliance. They have worked with a group of four community researchers, Ismail, Juliet, Mohammed and Sekou on a participatory research project examining mental health and wellbeing concerns faced by people seeking asylum in Scotland.

There will also be a chance to watch short animation Right to Work – Voices of the People, which highlights the impact of not being able to work on people seeking asylum and is created by members of the MIN Voices group.

This event is organised by Maryhill Integration Network and Poverty Alliance.
