It doesn’t matter where you were born, where you live, what language you speak, your skin colour, your religion or belief; we are all living through a global pandemic and the future remains uncertain for us all.

Join us this October to create and send a Postcard for Solidarity to people around the world and be part of an online exhibition for Scottish Interfaith Week 2020.

We are inviting up to 100 people to join us in making a Postcard for Solidarity. Your finished postcard will then be sent anonymously to someone in the world and you can choose to receive one in return.

Workshop activities

By participating in this project, you will also be invited to join us for two evening workshops in October to help you create and develop your postcard. These hour long photography and writing workshops will be held on Thursday 15th and Monday 19th at 7.30pm.

Award-winning artist and photographer Iman Tajik will guide you with your photography, which will be featured on one side of your postcard. Glasgow-based poet and educator Loll Jung will explore methods with you for writing about your lockdown experiences, expressing what you have learnt or lost, and your hopes and dreams for the future. Your unique message will be on the other side of the postcard.

Facebook group

You will also have the opportunity to join our Postcards for Solidarity Facebook group to share ideas and ask any questions you may have whilst completing your artwork.

Your final postcard will be exhibited on the Scottish Interfaith Week website, as part of the week-long festival which launches on Sunday 8th November 2020.

Register your interest

Anyone can take part, you do not need any previous photography or writing experience. We are here to help you at every stage.

If you are interested and want to participate, please email postcardsforsolidarity@gmail.com by Monday 12th October.
