Colours is a social awareness project aimed at drawing attention to the challenges and opportunities faced by refugees and asylum seekers. Our objective is to create a space to reflect on the global causes and impacts of the refugee crisis and the particular experience of relocation and integration of refugees in Scotland.
We are planning on curating an art exhibition in Edinburgh which reflects on these themes and we are looking for artists who would love to be involved in the project!
Artists may choose to work with our primary research findings, based on face-
to-face interviews with refugees resettling in Edinburgh. Any media is accepted, including video and performance art. The sellable artwork will be auctioned through a silent auction. Any money collected will be handed over to local charities dedicated to help refugees.
