Gretna 100 – legacy in the can

Earlier this year we worked with Citizen Curator and Out of The Blue on the Gretna 100 project. Our curator Jan Bee Brown led a group of community researchers on a 10 week journey to create an exhibition at The Drill Hall to commemorate the Gretna Rail Disaster. The site specific exhibition 7 of the Seventh complemented Active Enquiry’s promenade community play Persevere.

Recently the flexible exhibition was re- installed for Previously ,the Leith History Festival and the week finished with Rare Bird Media‘s film showing. Ray Bird followed the project from start to finish and his film clearly shows how a diverse community came together to both remember and create history. You can see the film by following this link:
