If you’re in the poetry garden in St Andrews Square at lunchtime on Thursday the 18th and feel like listening to some poetry, then my goodness you are in luck! Oxfam Scotland and the Scottish Poetry Library are holding an afternoon reading on the subject of home, as part of Refugee Week (15th-22nd June). Bring your favourite poem about what home means to you, write a few words on the spot, or add your words to those written by members of The Welcoming, a project to welcome newcomers to Scotland.
St Andrews Square will be displaying a collection of poems about home and homecoming from Friday 12th through to Monday 29th of June.
