It all began back on 2014 when WildWorks made history. Over 5000 people joined in their commemoration of the centenary of the beginning of WW1 by remembering the community’s lost men in a powerful dawn ‘til dusk performance. That performance was called 100: The Day Our World Changed and took place at the Lost Gardens of Heligan.
Now this July WildWorks return with 100: Unearth a production about love, loss and hope that marks the end of the war. And again they want the whole community with them.
Their fascinating and moving supporting projects are a way to do just that, in as small or as big way as you want.
The online project The Wall of Love is perhaps the easiest way to be involved but also the most poignant.
This elegantly simple idea springs from the legend of Orpheus, the hero of the performance. In the story he follows his beloved Eurydice into the Underworld to bring her back from death, so . . . who would you follow into the Underworld? The Wall of Love allows you to celebrate that loved one by adding their image to the growing collage.
The best bit is that the contributions will then be gathered and used to create an amazing artwork ready for the WildWorks’ production.
So make your submission before 22nd July to ensure that it features!
