About Remembering Together Moray
Remembering Together Moray is a project created with the Moray community involving events, music and story, providing a space for collective reflection on the Covid-19 pandemic.
The project is part of Scotland’s Covid Community Memorial Programme, delivered by greenspace scotland supported with funding provided by the Scottish Government. Lead artists Graeme Roger (wildbird) and Caroline Inckle (Studio Constella) have worked with community groups, artists and musicians to co-create a constellation of sound, words and images to support the Moray community in remembering together.
Developed through creative workshops, pop-ups and conversations with community groups and produced in collaboration with artists and musicians, Remembering Together will comprise digital, physical and experiential artworks, including:
● An immersive sound walk created by composer Lucie Treacher in collaboration with community groups and other musicians, which will visit key locations throughout Moray in August and September 2023.
● A written commission by writer Chris Lee which will draw on the lived experiences of people in Moray taken from newspaper and social media archives, woven into a fictional narrative and printed as a book destined for Moray libraries.
● A new traditional tune for Moray composed by musicians Duncan Chisholm and Hamish Napier that will be given to communities, providing a point of intergenerational connection through the acts of playing, teaching and learning.
Remembering Together is a national project involving artists working with communities across Scotland to co-create Covid memorials. Moray Council, tsiMoray, UHI Moray, Findhorn Bay Arts, M:ADE (Moray Arts Development Engagement) and Moray Lieutenancy were local project partners in Moray.
