Remembering Together

I sit here and watch and wait: An exhibition for Remembering Together West Lothian will be available to view for free from Friday 27 January to Sunday 28 May 2023.
 
The collection of community artworks aims to share collective and individual experiences of the pandemic through a diverse range of mediums and stories. This includes textiles, collages and photographs co-created by West Lothian residents with artist Marion Parola of the Bespoke Atelier design studio. 
 
The exhibition marks the ending of phase 1 of the project and introduces phase 2.  Visitors are invited to view the ideas and share  their thoughts and feelings about the early stage plans for the second phase of the project.
