Impacts of War
6 March - 8 May 2010
Pupils from Orleans Park School working with artist Christopher Rainbow present an insight on how war and conflict past and present have affected the lives of people living in our community, and how artists rise to the challenge of documenting the experience of war. The participating students created works based on the testimonies of local volunteers and their accounts of wars ranging from the Second World War to the conflict in Afghanistan. The exhibition presents an intriguing, moving insight into individuals’ stories. This project is supported by MLA Council and the Big Lottery Fund as part of the Their Past Your Future Phase 2 Programme.
