Co-curated with Artist Iman Tajik, the exhibition will present the original artwork created by young people through workshops and the process of illustration by Artist Garry Mac that was brought together to create the book in a space where you can experience movement/welcoming.

Please vote for ‘Under the Jasmine Tree’, the wonderful film MIN made in partnership with St Fillan’s Primary School and Media Co-op which has been nominated in this year’s Charity Film Awards, by clicking the link below. Launched during Refugee Festival Scotland 2019 ‘Under the Jasmine Tree’ is an animation created by Saint Fillan’s Primary School pupils, based on an original poem written by Glasgow-based Syrian poet and MIN Volunteer Saffanna. You can watch the film via the voting page or by visiting our MIN Films page. Winning the award would be a fantastic recognition for all the hard work that the children, their Teacher and MIN and Media Co-op Staff & Volunteers put into the project so your support would be greatly appreciated!
