Coming Home WW1 Project

A travelling exhibition and events programme to commemorate the end of the First World War in the Highlands.

About us: “Coming Home” is a travelling exhibition and events programme developed by High Life Highland (HLH) to commemorate the end of the First World War in the Highlands. Poignant individual experiences, explored through documents, objects and photographs held in High Life Highland museums and archives alongside partner independent museums, are placed at the heart of the project. These individual narratives will reflect the wider social and economic changes in the Highlands at the time. The travelling exhibition will open in 2018 and will tour a number of Highland galleries and museums (exact locations t.b.c.)

Meet the Artist: 

Lead Artist, Robyn Woolston, will be resident in the Church at the  Highland Folk Museum on: Wednesday 11th and Thursday 12th October between 1.00 and 4.00
