Community Celebration Talk/Workshop Visual Art

RISE with MOOL is both a celebration of our rich, diverse cultural community and an opportunity for creative expression. Working with writers, artists and local facilitators in the lead up to Refugee Week, refugees, new Scots and asylum seekers in the region will produce creative writing and devise art installations in a series of workshops leading to an exhibition in a temporary gallery, The Press, in Dumfries town centre. The work will be created by all ages and nationalities. It will be both a personal and group reflection of journeys taken, present experiences and those unknown journeys still to come.

Members of the public will be able to add their own experiences of RISE to one of the installation pieces.

This event is facilitated and organised by MOOL. It could not have happened without the generous support of DGMA and many wonderful individuals and organisations. A huge thanks to all.
