Remembrance 100 – Open Art Exhibition

21st May – 2nd Sept 2018

2018 marks 100 years since the end of the First World War. This Heritage Lottery Funded exhibition will consist of 100 selected artworks which have been made as a creative response to the theme of ‘Remembrance’. 2018 is the centenary of end of the First World War and the start of Remembrance as we know it today.

We want artists to look at the impact of Remembrance. This can be reflected in the question ‘What does Remembrance mean to me?’ What do you think of when you hear the word Remembrance?  How does it make you feel?  We want artists to creatively express their feelings.

The exhibition is an opportunity to not only remember the First World War but to explore how Remembrance has evolved over the last 100 years and is expressed today.
