Distanced Assemblage are a collaborative, artist-led initiative based in Glasgow, Scotland. They created ‘Imagine Lantern House’ for International Refugee Week 2020 to encourage people to share their solidarity with refugees and asylum seekers during the difficult times generated by the Covid-19 pandemic

 Many refugees and asylum seekers were displaced from their accommodations as a result of the Covid-19 outbreak, and support groups and officials struggled to provide food and shelter for migrants and asylum seekers sleeping outdoors. Many refugees found themselves more vulnerable than ever, enduring life without adequate food, shelter and proper sanitation.

The recreation of this project at Firstsite aims to bring awareness and visibility to the ongoing challenges faced by refugees and asylum seekers.

Please follow the instructions on the making tables outside the entrance to the Mosaic Gallery to make your own ‘Imagine Lantern House’ to display here and join this small, creative act of solidarity.
