Gretna 100 – Seven of the 7th
Posted on May 20, 2015
A busy time this week installing the community exhibition at Out of The Blue Drill Hall. I am really proud of the creative writing that the 7 member strong research group have produced. I gave a series of workshops on telling stories simply and looking at exhibition design to illustrate core themes. The volunteer research team then rose to the challenge and have produced a moving exhibition.
The Gretna 100 project opens at The Drill Hall on Dalmeny Street on Friday and runs throughout the summer.
Glass artist Heather Scott created The Tree of Life that sits centre stage and Persevere a community play takes place in the Drill Hall.
Having battled with laser technology with the help of Edinburgh Laser Studio the resulting interpretation panels burnt and etched into wood are looking good.
Thanks to Heritage Lottery Fund for their support on the Gretna 100 project, and to Citizen Curator – it has been such a memorable journey!
