Christian Aid will be at Solas Festival! Solas Festival brings performers and thinkers together to entertain, surprise and delight. Christian Aid will be bringing painting, panel discussions and protest to this midsummer celebration of art and ideas. Uprooted Exhibition in the Labyrinth There are 40 million internally displaced people around the world. Often those displaced inside their own country have not crossed a border and lack international recognition and support. The exhibition will give you the chance to hear and respond as displaced people tell their own stories. Through a series of powerful images and individual accounts, you will learn more about the global crisis of displacement, its consequences and the challenges displaced people face. Partnership not Patronage Panel Representatives from SCIAF, Tearfund and Christian Aid will explore the challenges of compassion fatigue and the unhelpful representation of the poor as objects of pity rather than active agents of their own destiny. ID Campbell Iain Campbell, a Glasgow-based artist, will be painting live at Solas on Saturday and Sunday. His work focuses on bold portraits which explore life in the face of adversity – both close to home and around the world.
