Hope, Peace, and Remembrance - Art Work on exhibition in Hampshire.

9 October 2018 (by admin)

During our annual Arts Week last year, the children created pieces of white art. Hope Peace and Remembrance was a project offered to Hampshire schools and their communities.

It was an opportunity for schools to participate in and contribute to art Installations for the commemoration of World War I, in 2018.

The work has been inspired by the final verse from the poem ‘Optimism’ by A.V. Ratcliffe:

For tiny hopes, like tiny flowers of spring,

Will come, though death and ruin hold the land;

Though storms may roar they may not break the wing

Of the earthed lark whose song is ever bland.

Fell year unpitiful, slow days of scorn,

Your kind shall die, and sweeter days be born.

The art installations are featured in The Winchester Cathedral, The Iron Age Museum in Andover and The Discovery Centre in Gosport. These will be in position for late October 2018 (to coincide with half term holidays) until the end of November/ December 2018, to mark this national event.

Please do visit these places over half term to look at the art work .
