Making it Home: Refugee Survival Trust. Poetry and Film.

A project run by the Refugee Survival Trust with women refugees from Glasgow and local women in Edinburgh. The women created four films based on thoughts and feelings inspired by poems centred around the idea of home.

The two groups together.

My favourite poem was this.

The Shortest and
Sweetest of Songs 

Come
Home.

From The Poetical Works of George MacDonald, 1893.

Click here to watch the films, I love the films inspired by The Shortest and
Sweetest of Songs.
 The aim of the project was to create connections. There’s also a pdf book about the project.
