First World War – Arts Development partnership

First World War – Arts Development partnership

South Lanarkshire’s museum collection lies at the centre of a number of exciting projects that are being delivered in partnership with our colleagues in Arts Development.

With generous funding of £68,000 from the Heritage Lottery Fund, the projects will deliver First World War related events in the art forms of dance, music and song, drama, and arts and crafts. These projects will bring to life stories of Cameronian soldiers in the First World War, as described in material held in the museum collection. It is an opportunity for school pupils, volunteers, and the wider community to learn more about the personal side of the conflict using museum records from the archive of the Cameronians (Scottish Rifles).

Professional screen writers, song writers and choreographers have been working with museum staff to interpret these stories through dance, song, and drama, which will be delivered in conjunction with school groups from across South Lanarkshire.

The material used in these projects has been identified through a program of ongoing digitisation and transcription work carried out by museum staff and with the valuable assistance of our dedicated volunteers.
