BETWEEN THE LINES - new blog on line

Our new exhibition, BETWEEN THE LINES, is the E.A.S.T group's response to the commemoration of the 1914-18 conflict.


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.
