Inspired by moving stories of family photographs lost in local floods. How do we preserve our most precious memories and what is really worth keeping? What becomes of personal and local histories in the digital age?
Based on research from Platform 2017, in collaboration with the community of Comrie, local narratives are intertwined with memories of a river in spate and the artist explores the value of archives that are marginalised or overlooked.
In a unique film premiere and live event, Earnsong Community Choir will perform songs about rivers and memories. The Comrie choir will be led by renowned song leaders: folk pioneer Christine Kydd, Georgian song tutor Irene Railley and the choir’s musical director Adelaide Carlow, Dr Sarah Neely, senior professor in media at Stirling University, will be guest speaker at the event.
