Glasgow Museums is proud to be taking action on World Refugee Day!

Today marks the beginning of Refugee Festival Scotland and we have a wonderful programme at Kelvingrove Museum from 20 - 30 June.

Refugee Festival Scotland celebrates the contribution refugee communities make to life in Scotland - the food and drink, music and poetry, art, languages and ideas that people bring with them when they seek safety here. From Thursday 20 - 30 June 2019, the festival offers people from different backgrounds the chance to meet and get to know each other better.

This year the theme for Refugee Festival Scotland is Making Art, Making Home. The theme focuses on the talent, creativity and resilience of New Scots artists and community groups. Many events that will take place at the museum throughout the festival have been co-curated with people and communities who have experience of navigating the UK immigration system.

We hope you can make it along to Kelvingrove over the next 10 days to experience this exciting programme of events!

In a world where violence forces thousands of families to flee for their lives each day, the time is now to show that the global public stands with refugees.
