Refugee Festival Scotland is an annual celebration of creativity, culture and community every June.  Groups, organisations and individuals across the country, showcasing the art, food, music, language, customs and ideas that people bring with them when they settle in Scotland. For 2024 the festival theme is RISE. 

Rise2gether with us and visit the Teardrop Explodes Exhibition in the Art Department Paisley.  Sewing2gether All Nations will be unveiling their 'Aye Welcome Refugees' paisley pattern inspired banner. 

Alongside this, view our previous year's submissions for Refugee Festival Scotland; 'One Millie All Nations' in partnership with Journeys In Design, and 'Paisley Conversations' audio-visual exhibition in partnership with local community voices.  A  taster of the weekly creative workshops facilitated Sewing2gether All Nations will also be on display. 

Rising together with us are Accord Hospice Paisley, Ferguslie Nursery Paisley, Highpark Primary School Glasgow, Mossvale Primary School Paisley, and Sew Fabulous Castlemilk, with their personalised banners made at workshops facilitated by Sewing2gether All Nations, as part of our programme of refugee awareness raising and community engagement sessions. This work will be viewable using the QR code on our main banner and on our website.
