In From The Margins


In from the Margins is a programme of Studios of Sanctuary residencies for artists with experience of displacement.

This project has created Europe's first network of Studios of Sanctuary, offering opportunities for 30 artists from refugee and migrant backgrounds to take up supported residencies in internationally recognised print studios: Edinburgh Printmakers, Scotland; Cork Printmakers, Ireland; AGA Lab, Amsterdam, Netherlands; Funen Printmaking Studio, Odense, Denmark; and the International Centre of Graphic Arts, Ljubljana, Slovenia.

These organisations all have a strong history of social engagement, based in multi-cultural cities on the margins of Europe, either on coastal fringes or in the far East of Europe.
This project will bring the work of refugee and migrant artists 'in from the margins' to mainstream programming to celebrate culture and artistic tradition and explore ways to exchange and share experience, showcase their practice; and develop engagement opportunities with a wider audience including refugees, schools and other communities.

In from the Margins emerged from discussions from a previous collaboration between the partners, all print studios with civic aims, supported by British Council & Creative Scotland.

In from the Margins is supported by the European Commission’s Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA), through its Creative Europe programme.
