From Asmara to Glasgow: The Untold Stories of Eritrea

From Asmara to Glasgow – two cities thousands of miles apart and two cities that seem like completely different worlds to one another. This was the story that the young Eritreans told the audience at Rosemount and North Glasgow Integration Network’s evening of Eritrean culture, politics and history.

The event was planned and presented by young people who had made the journey from Eritrea to Scotland. Monika, Integration Development Worker at North Glasgow Integration Network, had arranged this opportunity to show the people of Glasgow what Eritreans come from – and how many struggles they’ve had to go through to get to Scotland.

The Learning & Events Space was buzzing with people, music, dancing and the amazing smells from the home-cooked food the volunteers had brought along to introduce the audience to Eritrean culture.
