We’re looking forward to the Migrant Voice Glasgow conference on the 21st January, titled ‘Migrants and Migration Post Brexit; finding our voice to influence the new landscape.’
This event brings together migrant communities in Scotland with experts on migration, equality, activists, artists, academics, the media and others. The Minister for International Development and Europe- Dr Alasdair Allan will be our key speaker.
This will be an action oriented event, with workshops with journalists which focus on how to get migration stories told; opportunities to experience mock up interviews in radio and TV studios; opportunities to understand the process of filming, reporting and challenging hate crime and xenophobia; opportunities to explore the challenges for migrants’ rights and influencing this new landscape.
This is the first Migrant Voice Conference in Scotland – this event will go to the heart of these issues and explore ways forward and most importantly seek to build alliances and share understanding.
Recent migrants, those from within long established communities with a migratory history in Scotland and those simply seek to engage and support are all welcome to this free event.
After the conference, there will be an early evening schedule where we will launch ‘A Story in a Poem’ project, there will be dance performances by Maryhill Integration Network and a multi cultural ceilidh and delicious food. The poetry launch and evening schedule will take place in the Students Association building.
