  3. Get involed with our Creative Activism project... Spring/Summer 2013

    Xchange Scotland are partners in an international project about creative activism. Creative activism is about getting out into the world and sharing critical thinking in a fun and engaging way. At the moment we are working on a Handbook of Creative Activism and we would really appreciate some new faces to work together with us. We have 2 hot topics that scream for attention!


    This is a great chance for you, all the creative activists, to reach the world and share things you have already done. All you need to do is send us a nice written report about one action you have made. It has never been so easy to get into the book!

  5. Come along to our Civic Reception to celebrate and find out more about international volunteering - Tuesday, 3pm, 9th April 2013

    We are very pleased to invite you along to an event we have at the City Chambers in Glasgow to celebrate and share information about international volunteering. The event will start at 3pm on Tuesday 9th April. It will go on until about 5pm.

    What is this event about? 

    As you may know, Xchange Scotland is a charity set up by young people in Glasgow to use international volunteering and non-formal education to inspire and support people to make a positive impact in their own communities. We achieve this by bringing volunteers to support the work of non-profit organisations in Scotland and by sending volunteers to partners in more than 40 different countries across the world. This event is intended to be a celebration of those volunteers!

    Within the international project "Loesje Crosses the Mediterranean" (NGO from Egypt, Germany, Israel, Palestine, Slovenia and the United Kingdom coming together around the topics of Freedom of Expression and Freedom of Speach) we want YOU to share your perception of your reality through one photograph.

    The competition will be running until the 31st March 2013 and 10 photos will be chosen to be exhibited in a travelling exhibition together with the Loesje posters created in workshops during this collaboration. Since this is an international project, there is also the possibility of your photo being exhibited in any of the other partipating countries.
