Portrait of Home

4 Jun – 21 Jun

Portrait of Home is a collection of photographs of families based in Scotland who also have cultural roots in other Commonwealth countries. This work celebrates Scotland's links to the Commonwealth, visually representing how migration between these countries has shaped the national and cultural identity of contemporary Scotland.

The exhibition comprises images of families from the Shetland Islands, to Stirling, to here in Glasgow. Some of them have been settled in Scotland for up to four generations, and others include family members who arrived just in the last few years

This exhibition has been timed to coincide with Scottish Refugee Week 15 – 21 June.
