Walk to the Border

I am making an art work in Bellahouston Park to reflect the exact walk people take, having travelled from all over the world and all over Glasgow, from the Unity Centre to the UKBA.  The walk will terminate at the fence..just like the fence bordering the Border Agency.

My motive is to provide people in the park with an opportunity to engage with what this walk actually means, as they journey along it, for people, their histories and the consequences. I would like to include information at places along the way and on the fence about individual experiences, to help people understand, but I don’t want to ask people currently going through the process as they are still vulnerable, so if others reading this would like to share their thoughts, or even contribute an item or handwritten note that would be very helpful.

I hope it also raises awareness of the work of Unity cos it is brilliant.
