Glimpses on Greek migrants in Edinburgh

Nikolaos Papadogiannis (Lecturer in Modern History at Bangor University) is co-organising the exhibition ‘Glimpses on Greek migrants in Edinburgh’. This is taking place between 5 November and 2 December at The Safari Lounge in Edinburgh (free entry). The exhibition focuses on the work and leisure experience of those migrants. It is also an invitation to dialogue: visitors are asked to reflect on the photos and note in the guestbook, if they wish, their ideas on how Greeks in Edinburgh and people from other origins living in that city benefit from their interaction. 

The exhibition has been prepared by Giorgis Charalampidis and Nikolaos Papadogiannis. All photos were taken and processed by Giorgis Charalampidis. This exhibition forms part of the Nikolaos Papadogiannis’ research, specifically looking at how to enhance the social connectivity among migrants from Southern Europe and the other residents of Scotland. His broader research looks at migration from Greece to Northern Europe and the interaction among Greek migrants and the other inhabitants of their host societies.
