BETWEEN THE LINES - new blog on line

Our latest exhibition, BETWEEN THE LINES, is the E.A.S.T group's response to the commemoration of the 1914-18 conflict and was very well received at Alexandra Palace.


An extra blog has been sent up which will not only look at some of the stories behind the research to our work, but also make note of other artistic and cultural responsive to the commemorations across the UK.



Keep up to date on our blog and on Facebook.

For up to date information about events and exhibition visit our blog or find us on Facebook. We would also love you to "like our page" and this will also keep you updated.


Our Between the Lines blog currently has information on all the work by the different artists as well as information on other WW1 artistic and cultural commemorative events.
