Solas Festival

June 2017

Christian Aid Scotland will be at Solas Festival from 23-25 June.

Sunny day at Solas Festival

A sunny June can only mean one thing: festival season! So, Christian Aid Scotland will be joining our Just Peace partners at Solas Festival in Perth from 23-25 June.

Christian Aid supporters can get 10% off the price of a full weekend ticket for Solas Festival using the code ChAid on the festival website.

Christian Aid will be based in the Peace Tent, enjoying and hosting a full programme which will include panels, interviews and installations based on the festival theme of 'Home'.

We're thrilled that we will be joined at the festival by Fraser Murray, Refugee Policy and Advocacy Adviser at Christian Aid.

In a discussion entitled 'This is not a refugee crisis', Fraser will help us to move beyond labels and towards greater understanding of those who find themselves without a safe place to call home.

Christian Aid Scotland's Wendy Young and Fiona Buchanan will lead a workshop on tackling gender based violence from a faith perspective.

And we can't wait to listen in to the contributions from our Just Peace partners. Top of our list are Michael Marten on the Middle East, and Ruth Harvey and Pat Bennett on 'The Spirituality of Conflict'.

The Just Peace Partnership is made up of a clutch of organisations energised by a vision for resilient and peace-making communities both locally and globally. We are inspired by faith and motivated by the belief that everyone should have a hopeful, hospitable and safe place to call home.

The Just Peace Partnership includes the Church of Scotland, Place for Hope, the Iona Community, the Corrymeela Community, Christian Aid, Progressive Christianity Network and Wild Goose Resource Group.
