creative responses to aerial photographs of Annan 1919-1953
a community writing project
Six weeks is a very short time in which to produce a printed book. It is only due to the energy and enthusiasm of the participating writers that the task has been accomplished, and in great good humour. Annan and Kirkcudbright had been pin-pointed as two communities on the Solway, along with Cockermouth and Bowness-on-Solway, to take part in a cross-Border project organised by English Heritage, the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Scotland (HCAHMS), and Britain from Above with National Lottery funding.
The result of all this activity can be seen, heard and celebrated on Tuesday 9th September 6.30 pm - 8.30 pm at The Market Hall, Annan - where there will be displays of the Britain from Above photographs and of the work created, brief readings by the writers and distribution of copies of the book and a glass of wine or fruit juice for all. This is a free event - you are asked to arrive by the Museum entrance in Bank Street.
There is a project blog at : annanfromabove.wordpress.com which has extracts from work in progress over the period of the project. Annan TV has also been recording some of the workshops and will be at the launch event.
