Home Office Criticised for UK Entry Ban on Wigtown Book Festival Storyteller

first_imgBooking information – To book tickets call 01988 403222, visit in person at Number 11 North Main Street in Wigtown or buy online at wigtownbookfestival.comWebsite – wigtownbookfestival.com AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterTwitterShare to LinkedInLinkedInLinkedInDirector of international cultural and tourism event calls for Scotland’s Secretary of State to help overturn visa decisionThe Home Office has been condemned for barring a young storyteller from entering the UK where he is due to be one of the official artists in residence at Wigtown Book Festival.An appeal is being made to Secretary of State for Scotland David Mundell MP and to Alister Jack MP to intervene on behalf of Mehdi El Ghaly as the prestigious international event (which starts this weekend) takes place in Dumfries and Galloway – which is covered by their constituencies.Adrian Turpin, Wigtown Book Festival Artistic director, said: “It is disappointing and frustrating that a respected young storyteller involved in a long-running arts project designed to bring peoples together should be denied a visa to attend an international festival. “Wigtown Book Festival involves writers, journalists, academics, artists and visitors from all over the world and is an award-winning showcase for Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland and the whole of the UK.“We are calling on the region’s MPs and MSPs to make representations to the Home Office, whose decision mars the country’s reputation for intellectual openness and exchange.”Mehdi along with photographer Houssain Belabbes from Morocco, have been working with Scottish counterparts Anne Errington and Laura Hudson Mackay on a project called Confluence exploring and comparing storytelling traditions from the two countries.They have been awarded a fully funded residency at the Wigtown Book Festival where they were due to tell stories, many illustrated by photography, from Morocco and work with festivalgoers to gather or create new tales.The project was planned as an exchange, the second part of which would see the Scots welcomed to Morocco.Laura, who has worked extensively in Morocco for many years, said: “The project is about humanity and exploring storytelling traditions of what on the surface appears to be very culturally different, Celtic and Arabian.“Mehdi is utterly dedicated to his country and its culture, a social entrepreneur running projects to teach Morocco’s ancient stories to a new generation and to preserve their centuries old traditions of public storytelling.“To deny a gifted, enthusiastic young man who wants to share his storytelling talent and culture with us in Scotland is shortsighted and negative.“To deny him the opportunity to be part of the Confluence event at Wigtown Book Festival is a shame, but we very much look forward to October when our next Confluence event takes place in Marrakech, Morocco, where Mehdi lives.”Describing what inspired him, and his passion for his country, Mehdi said: “Whenever there was a storyteller in the square in Marrakech you’d find me there. And I as grew the passion for storytelling grew in me. So, I said to myself, ‘Why not become a storyteller?’ I want to share the art that changed my own life.”Despite the setback Confluence will go ahead the Wigtown Book Festival which runs from 22 September to 1 October.Joyce Woodcock, interim director, of the Upland Arts Agency which is funding Confluence and collaborates with Wigtown Book Festival on an annual residency, said: “It is deeply unfortunate that a young man taking part in a project intended to bring people together is being prevented from coming to the festival – especially at a time of such international tensions when there is a greater need than ever to build bridges between countries and cultures.“It is a tribute to the other people involved in Confluence that they are determined to continue with their work and make it a success.”last_img read more

MSU lands commits from 2 Meridian standouts

first_imgMeridian safety Zaire Jones had been committed to Mississippi State for a few weeks.But he was the only one that knew it.On Saturday night, he was on the sidelines in Starkville with teammate Quincy Lenton.When Lenton informed Jones he too wanted to be a Bulldog, Jones figured now was as good a time as any to make his decision public.“I just felt comfortable… (committing) with one of my teammates,” Jones told The Clarion-Ledger in a text message.Lenton and Jones give Mississippi State seven commitments in its 2015 class, which ranks fourth in the nation according to 247Sports.com.The pair of safety also give the Bulldogs pledges from three defensive backs in the class.Jones, a four-star, is ranked as the state’s No. 6 overall junior prospect.Lenton isn’t as heralded. He’s not ranked by most recruiting websites, but the 5-foot-10, 190-pounder is praised for his hard-hitting and speed.Lenton reports interest from Ole Miss, Southern Miss, Nebraska and Tennessee.Mississippi State is the lone offer for both prospects, although Jones’ has taken visits to both Alabama and Auburn this season.Jones said his “tight” relationship with MSU’s coaching staff made him feel comfortable committing so early in the recruiting process.“(Mississippi State) coach (Dan) Mullen and the whole staff has been making us feel welcome since the day we met,” Jones said. “Since then, the relationship hasn’t done anything but (get) stronger.”The 6-foot-1, 190-pound Jones also credited the staff’s track record for developing talent as a “major” factor in their commitments.“That really made (us) more drawn to the university,” Jones said.last_img read more
