Colours of Edinburgh: Lives in Transit

One of the final events of #RefugeeFestScot – in fact, it’s still ongoing! – is Colours of Edinburgh’s “Lives in Transit: Written Accounts and Artistic Expressions of Refugee Stories”.

The exhibition opened on Sunday 30th June, and will run until 7th July at Out of the Blue Drill Hall, with an art auction running alongside to raise funds for Bikes for Refugees and The Welcoming Edinburgh.

Go Deep at the Welcoming

The Welcoming Edinburgh invited everybody to discover how to create positive changes in your community and help Edinburgh be more Welcoming. All were invited to a weekend of opportunities, fun, games, connectedness and meeting lots of interesting people, on 22-23 June.

Attendees learnt all about Go Deep, an exciting game that helps people link with individuals and their community as a whole.
