We are 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 to capture Scotlands history as it happens.

The exhibition, sharing photographs from two of Migrant voices'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.

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 on display at Kelvingrove for one year, alongside a programme of events around curation and representation of migrants, and story-telling by people who have made Scotland their home.

The launch will include speeches from UNESCO Chair in Refuge Integration Through Languages and Arts, Professor Alison Phipps, migrant Voice Director Nazek Ramadan, and individuals portrayed in the exhibition. There will also be a chance to talk to the members of our network who have helped to curate this exhibition, and engage in an activity they have devised.

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

we look forward to seeing you there!
