As communities come together to mark the centenary of the armistice, HOPE commemorates the faith, humanity and resilience of the people of County Durham during the First World War.
The artwork, created by Newcastle-based art and design studio Aether & Hemera, will be located outside of the Gala Theatre in Durham’s Millennium Place from Friday, 9 November, to Thursday, 15 November.
Commissioned by Durham County Council, it features a large-scale text sculpture composed of hundreds of colour-changing LED tubes, along with speakers projecting voices retelling local people’s experiences of the war.
Many of the stories are contained within letters, diaries and memoirs at Durham County Record Office. They are also immortalised within The Durham Hymns, a poignant musical tribute, which will be performed at the Gala Theatre on Sunday, 11 November.
