Remembering Together has commissioned artists in all 32 local authority areas in Scotland to co-create with communities, exploring who, what and how we want to remember and honour all those affected by Covid. Offering a place to connect, to reflect and to create, Remembering Together is about creating together, being part of a process to commemorate those who have lost their lives, those who have experienced loss and change as well as celebrating the ways in which Scottish communities have come together, bonded with close families and communities, learnt new skills and enjoyed slowing down, during the most difficult times. Remembering Together is being delivered by greenspace scotland at the request of Scottish Government. Shetland Arts, working with Shetland Islands Council, on behalf of greenspace Scotland, have appointed Christina Inkster to work with communities to deliver the first phase of this project.

Join local artist Christina Inkster at a Creative Workshop provided as part of the Remembering Together project. The workshops are free of charge as part of the project and function as a sharing space for participants to discuss memorialising covid. Booking recommended to ensure a place.
