Art27 Scotland

NEW: Art27scotland’s 2021-2022 Annual Report:


“Cultural rights are incompatible with restrictive, one-dimensional accounts of culture or identity.  Fixed identity has ceased to be a pre-determining factor in community life.  Our identity has changed to being a starting point towards a negotiated destination”

“We gather starts from more than one sky.  We are not soldiers, but we are fighters, fully armed with words, ideas, thoughts and art, standing in the front line to protect our human rights” (Ghazi)

“Each one of us tries to overcome our fears, the fears that governments have put on our lives, and overcoming these fears leads us to freedom of expression and we display our expression in our heart” (Laleh)
