CHILDREN and the elderly have been working together to create art commemorating the end of the First World War and an exhibition will showcase their work.

Project Peace is a six-week intergenerational art project which involved 12 attendees from Meadowpark Day Centre and eight pupils from Prendergast Primary School Haverfordwest, who worked together with Artist Pip Lewis during September and October 2018.

The resulting exhibition will be on display at spacetocreate (opposite Wilkinson’s) Riverside Shopping Centre SA61 2ET in Haverfordwest from November 12 to 29.

The Exhibition is part of Haverfordwest’s End of World War 1 commemoration programme.

The artwork was made in response to the 100th year Anniversary of the war, exploring and what peace means today.

During the summer Pip curated a selection of photographs from the current Pembrokeshire and The First World War Exhibition at Haverfordwest Town Museum, and photographs and documents from Pembrokeshire Archives.

The images captured children’s lives in Pembrokeshire at the time, and how the First World War was commemorated in Haverfordwest.

The participants worked in pairs to create layered paper collages, from copies of the original photographs, as well as learning and incorporating silkscreen techniques.

During the course of the workshops both the children and older people shared their interests and hobbies with each other, and discussed the many changes that had taken place during their lifetimes.

The pupils, all from families currently serving in the forces, brought in photographs and documents of their great-great grandparents who had served in WW1 and several of the participants from Meadowpark were evacuated to Pembrokeshire in WW2 and shared their memories of their childhood, along with photos of themselves from this time.

The Exhibition Opening is on Monday, November 12 at 6 pm at spacetocreate, Haverfordwest.
