This project is all about building connections. So it makes sense that nothing would have happened without the enthusiasm, trust and support of our extraordinary project partners.
Here they are:
Women Supporting Women, part of the Pilton Community Health Project - supporting participants, providing a welcoming venue in Edinburgh.
Maryhill Integration Network - supporting participants, providing a welcoming venue in Glasgow
Scottish Poetry Library - from the very start giving invaluable advice, support, and enthusiasm for all things poetry related
Mediaco-op - participatory film-making with passion and vision
Jane McKie, poet and workshop facilitator for the participants from Maryhill Integration Network (Maryhill, Glasgow)
Claire Askew, poet and workshop facilitator for the participants from Women Supporting Women (Pilton, Edinburgh)
David Farrier, Lecturer in Modern and Contemporary English Literature at the University of Edinburgh - shared his insights on issues relating to literature, asylum and the concept of sanctuary; helped enormously in shaping and maintaining evaluation systems; and was instrumental in raising funds for the Making it Home booklet.
Summerhall - thank you for providing a fantastic venue for our film installation in Edinburgh during Refugee Week, and for making it all so easy to sort out.
