Last Saturday Francesca Calò, part of the SIRIUS team at Glasgow Caledonian University, attended the Scotland Welcomes Refugees Gathering 2018. The event was organised by several non profit organisations that welcome refugees in Scotland.
The Gathering aimed at connecting welcome groups, grassroot movements, like minded individuals and refugees with one another. It provided a place for sharing ideas, listening to and discussing with refugees and refugee-led organisations, along with interactive workshops. More than 20 activities were organised during the day. Workshops included, among others, information about community sponsorship, stories exchange, Samba drumming classes and discussion about solidarity campaigns.
