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.
