Colouring outside the lines – virtual art exhibition guided tour

by UNESCO RILA
Tuesday 15 June 2021, 16:00
About the event:

Colouring outside the lines showcases over 70 pieces from the UNESCO RILA Affiliate Artist Network. The network connects global artists who work with and reflect on the role arts and languages play in bringing people together and strengthening social cohesion.

Paintings, photographs, videos, audio, poetry, music and 3D installations, offer artists’ perspectives on migration, integration and identity in a globalised world and stimulate critical reflection on our understanding of refugee integration. We invite you to a guided tour of the exhibition with one of the artists: step into their space and imagine what a more hospitable world could look like.

About UNESCO Chair in Refugee Integration through Languages and the Arts (UNESCO RILA)

UNESCO’s UNITWIN and Chairs programme promotes international cooperation and networking to mobilise collaboration around the Sustainable Development Agenda 2030 and in key priority areas related to UNESCO’s fields of competence – education, natural and social sciences, culture and communication.

The UNESCO Chair in Refugee Integration through Languages and the Arts (UNESCO RILA) at the University of Glasgow supports learning from contexts which have long-term refugee and migratory experiences and where resilience has been developed, often in the face of overwhelming linguistic and cultural destruction.

Working with our global partners, we engage in research and advocacy for creative and artistic approaches to integration, which sustain linguistic and cultural diversity, foster creativity and intercultural capabilities and promote peace.
