Witchcraft Memorial Project - Resources
During the Orkney Witchcraft Trials Memorial Project, various community events have resulted in the production of diverse and interesting creative output. We'll bring you more after the Memorial Inauguration Day Sat 9th March 2019, including detail on the newly-installed memorial and time capsule. A "Creative Day" was held in October 2018, with workshops for songwriting, storytelling, printing, letter writing and sound recording. Some of the results, along with other works inspired by the project, are to be found below.
