Show Racism the Red Card (Scotland) to start work on educational film with Walnut Wasp

Scottish office to make short film to challenge dangerous anti-immigration messages

Thanks to sponsorship from the Educational Institute of Scotland, Show Racism the Red Card Scotland are excited to announce their partnership with Walnut Wasp. The boutique digital content firm will be working with the anti-racism charity to film a number interviews which capture the experiences, both positive and negative, of Scotland’s migrant communities.  This will be used in our education work to inform and challenge young people and prevent the formation of racist ideas.  

Throughout the anti racism education charity’s 18 year history, SRtRC have used the profile and role model status of professional footballers to help engage young people in safe and non-judgmental discussions about racism and prejudice.  Watch this space to see who’ll be taking part! 

Excerpts may also be featured in the educational film currently being made by SRtRC England featuring stories from migrants from all over the UK including Cesc Fabregas and Jozy Altidore. The film will be used extensively throughout England, Scotland and Wales.

Walnut Wasp were selected as the Scottish filmmaker after the SRtRC team viewed the company’s recent documentary on Greater Maryhill Food Bank and were stuck by their ability to powerfully present people’s stories.

Stay tuned to the website for further updates on progress with the film. SRtRC (Scotland) would like to thank our sponsor the Educational Institute if Scotland once again for their continue support.
