The Tall Ship, Riverside, Glasgow, Scotland
It is one hundred years since the sinking of the Lusitania, and this evening we commemorate not only the lives of those who died, but the survivors and the people who helped to rescue the survivors and recover the bodies of the dead.
We are delighted to be supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund, which has enabled Glen Art to work with the wonderfully creative people at The Tall Ship and Music Co-OPERAtive Scotland for this evening, and also to
curate an exhibition of RMS Lusitania, for the thousands of people, including many children, who will visit The Tall Ship in the coming weeks.
The sinking of the Lusitania raises perhaps more questions than answers, but as ever it is the individual stories of those involved which provide a
connection to our own lives and remind us that the cost of war is counted not only in the numbers of lives lost, but in the anguish and grief that ripples through generations.
At Glen Art we believe that the most fitting way to commemorate those who died or lived during the unimaginable horrors of the First World War is to care for current veterans and their families.
If you would like to support us, be involved or know more about Glen Art, please do get in touch, we would love to hear from you!
