Creative Scotland has awarded funding to Scottish Refugee Council to deliver an insightful and empowering new participatory multi-art form project, ‘Share My Table’, in partnership with Tramway and the Hidden Gardens.
‘Share My Table’ engages a core group of refugees, asylum seekers, other migrants and local Scots in a series of creative workshops, events and arts activities, led by professional artists, to explore public perceptions and contemporary media portrayals of refugees and discover their real life experiences, often hidden behind today’s media headlines.
The workshops will also centre on gathering together and food sharing, exploring a sub theme of refugee contributions to Scotland’s food heritage. Each workshop as well as the public performances, will involve food from around the world as a starting point for sharing culture and conversations.
A key output will be a creative community conference at Tramway and the Hidden Gardens in June 2017, as part of Refugee Festival Scotland – when the core group will generate discussion, share their discoveries, stories and art work up to that point with a public audience.
Following a further development period, the project will then culminate in an immersive public performance/s and a visual art installation, at Tramway and the Hidden Gardens, as part of Black History Month in October 2017, centred on sharing food, music and storytelling.
