This event is an opportunity to reflect on the Australian Aboriginal relation to ‘country’, vividly portrayed in the exhibition: The Child Artists of Carrolup at the University of Glasgow Memorial Chapel.

Part of the Stolen Generation, these children’s stories and drawings invite truth-telling about loss and alienation, but also the possibilities of healing.

Scottish human ecologist, researcher, and activist Alastair McIntosh, ‘a Quaker with an interfaith outlook’, explores decolonisation in a way that probes its deeper effects and implications. He is an honorary professor in the College of Social Sciences at the University of Glasgow.

Alastair grew up on the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides. This background, with time in the South Pacific, shaped his life’s work in land reform, community empowerment and the spirituality of the human condition. His books include Soil and Soul: People versus Corporate Power (Aurum) and most recently Riders on the Storm (Birlinn 2020).

The Chapel will be open from 6 pm for attendees to view the exhibition. Light refreshments will be served. Open to all and free of charge.
