These Christmas cards are paintings I made on a theme of a contemporary setting for the nativity. They were inspired after learning about some of the experiences of asylum seekers living in the city of Glasgow. It is a long way from the cosy commodification of festive season and the sanitised version of the nativity often portrayed. It is one way in which I can help raise funds for Unity in Glasgow who do lots of fantastic work for asylum seekers on a financial shoestring.
There are five designs, all printed at A6 size on quality recycled card:
Angels of Today
Come to my Place
Three Wise Men.
They come in packs of 10 with envelopes, A6 size (approx 15cm by 10½cm), and are printed on recycled card. 30% of any profit I make will go to organisations working with asylum seekers and refugees.
If you like them please do order some, or if you know any other organisations or individuals to whom you think they would appeal please pass on this blog page or contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.. I have a shop on Etsy where you can order them directly.. click on the link below or search for me at CarrieGoochCards on Etsy.com.
In Edinburgh they are on sale in the Peace and Justice Centre under St. John’s Church, Princes Street, Edinburgh EH2 4BJ…0131 229 0993 . It is a delight for me that sales of my cards can be used to support such a good organisation.
