At Eastwood Park Theatre & Gallery
From Sunday 29th January to Friday 17th February
We invite you to share some of the stories, as told or written by members of East Renfrewshire’s community. Excerpts from the creative writing works are on display and ten recorded stories have been brought to life through a stunning photographic portrait by Wes Kingston. Our online version of the exhibition can be viewed by following the links at the foot of this article.
This project has been supported by the Year of Stories 2022 Community Stories Fund. This fund is being delivered in partnership between VisitScotland and Museums Galleries Scotland with support from National Lottery Heritage Fund thanks to National Lottery players. The creative writing sessions were part-funded by Live Literature Funding from Scottish Book Trust.
We would also like to thank the project volunteers, creative writers, project interviewees, Wes Kingston for the photography, Sue Morrison, Oral History Training & Research Consultancy for training and advice and Alan Bissett for leading the creative writing workshops. We would also to like to thank staff across East Renfrewshire Culture & Leisure for their support with the project.
As part of the legacy of the project, we will continue to collect stories through further oral history interviews. If you would like your own story recorded or would like to send feedback on the exhibition, please contact us at: email@example.com
