“Kemal will be working on our South East Glasgow project which is funded through the South East Integration Network up to March 2015. This project will be making connections with faith and belief communities in the South East of Glasgow to run a series of community meals in the various places of worship in this part of the city. These meals will be an opportunity for people from all backgrounds to experience some of the diversity which exists in the South East and will also be an excellent opportunity for dialogue too.”

Sunday 11th May 2 – 4 pm, at St Mungo Museum of Religious Life and Art
