About

Written in Stone enabled a group of young people to research their local war memorials and commemoration ceremonies. The project researched and captured the thoughts of young people, supported and enabled them to devise and perform a stimulus piece of theatre based on their findings which was then  shared with a wider audience.

Written in Stone  then delivered workshops with young people led by professional musicians where the young people  learnt about commemorative music and enabled them to devise and create their own new anthem which was  performed at the memorials and at a special commemorative event.

A documentary film was created about the project and the subject. This documentary includes interviews and footage from the performance to creating a record of the process.

This website has been created as part of the project to collect and record the thoughts and feelings of those taking part and to create a platform for debate and discussion for the wider community.
