On 12 December 2012, Iriss.fm visited the 'At Home Abroad' exhibition, which was being held at the Scotland Street School Museum in Glasgow. The exhibition opened in December 2012 and runs until the end of January 2013 and is housed at the Scotland Street School Museum in Glasgow.
In the exhibition, children from four schools - migrants and non-migrants - share their views of the migratory experience through photographs, poems, objects, painting and collage. It illustrates children's real and imagined experiences of migration and aims to present a different view of the migratory experience, as seen by children. The exhibition is a result of a piece of research that was conducted on the experiences of East European migrant children. Daniele Sime, Senior Lecturer at the University of Strathclyde told us more about the research and the resulting exhibition.
The exhibition is a result of research that was conducted in 2011, entitled, At home abroad: the life experiences of Eastern European migrant children in Scotland.
