2018 is a big year for Animated Objects. Following on from the Big Bike Beat Band, we are running ‘Stories of Remembrance’ as part of events along the North Yorkshire Coast to mark the centenary of Armistice Day. We have been commissioned to produce life sized statues of WW1 service personnel to be present at events in Scarborough, Whitby and Filey. These will be surrounded by fields of hand made poppies produced by the local communities. The response so far has been extremely positive, and we look forward to displaying the work of all our workshop participants in November. Please visit our Facebook page for details of where and when each statue and field of poppies will be on display.
Please find below links to a video soundscape featuring the voices of young people from across the region sharing their thoughts and original poetry on the theme of remembrance.
