Tears of Gold: Stories of Women Displaced from Home

University of Glasgow Chapel

Research has shown, with a constancy, that when resources are scarce it is the most vulnerable and marginalised people who will suffer first. In conflict over resources – land and water – it’s very hard to draw a causal line between forced migration and climate chaos, but what we do know from past environmental degradation is that it has produced forced displacement. In this exhibition of work by Hannah Rose Thomas, we come face to face with the grief and loss of bodily integrity, with the integrity of human lives lived within the environment, and are offered, through portraiture, a window into a future world. 

Presented in partnership with the UNESCO Chair for Refugee Integration through Languages and the Arts, the Chaplaincy at the University of Glasgow, and Interfaith Scotland.
