We explore the Church of Scotland’s report ‘One Scotland, Many Cultures’ and the ‘Cultural Heritage Project’ addressing first-generation immigrants to Scotland. We ask our panel members to consider how migration, hospitality and celebrating difference require a continued willingness, from host and immigrant communities, to be counter-cultural and embrace the possibility of transformation.
Chair: Professor Alison Phipps, Glasgow University, Professor of Languages and
Panellists: Doris Pesche (General Secretary, CCME), Omar Sheikh (The Colourful Heritage Project, Alwaleed Centre), Sally Foster-Fulton (Church and Society Council Intercultural Studies, Creativity Culture and Faith)
