Interfaith Scotland- Refugee Portraits Exhibition

HRT Potraits Refugees

This month I hosted young artist Hannah Rose Thomas and Interfaith Scotland at the Scottish Parliament for the exhibition of her portraits of refugees. This was a wonderful event, attended by the Scottish Refguee Council, NGOs, MSPs and interested members of the public. 

"I believe that nothing is more important than compassion for one another. Through my portrait paintings of refugees I seek to convey that each of us are created in the image of God and equally valuable in His eyes, regardless of race, religion, economic circumstance or social status. Let us seek to keep the borders of our heart open to those who are different from us. This is essential if we are to overcome the distorted agendas of violence and extremism that seek to divide us." Hannah Rose Thomas, from her speech in Scottish Parliament 13 June 2017
