Strathspey in the Great War
2018 marks the Centenary of the end of the First World War, a landmark anniversary for Britain and the world. Strathspey & The Great War explores the role and impact of the conflict on the lives and families of the local community through the fascinating reportage of the local newspaper, The Strathy.
With so many loved ones far away, news was incredibly important to people at home. Newspapers became a lifeline, reporting what was happening politically, informing families of losses and publishing extracts of letters from the front. From the intriguing story of the moss gatherers, to reports home from the Front, The Strathy was not only a reporter but an instigator, interrogator, encourager, an opinion giver and agent provocateur.
The exhibition runs from May 19th to 27th September 2018 at Grantown Museum.
Supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
Thursday 4th October – Wednesday 31st October
Coming Home is a travelling exhibition developed by High Life Highland in collaboration with the Highland Museums Forum to commemorate the end of the First World War in the Highlands.
At the heart of the Coming Home exhibition are poignant individual experiences explored through documents, objects and photographs held in Highland museums, libraries and archives. From Highland women who broke the mould as doctors, nurses and dispatch riders to the international legacy of Norwegian loggers, prisoners of war and the American Navy, the exhibition reflects the wider social and economic changes taking place at the time.
Monday 1st October – Wednesday 31st October
