In 2022 we collaborated with local artist, Mel Langton and eight community groups across the East Midlands to create unique artwork installations for this year’s Remembrance Day.
The project was jointly funded by EMR, Community Rail Network and six Community Rail Partnerships across the East Midlands.
The eight individual pieces will travel across the East Midlands by rail and will be installed to create one large piece of art at both Nottingham and Derby railway stations. When the pieces come together, they will cleverly create a new piece of artwork. The collective piece will be on display by the war memorials, in time for the services on Armistice Day (Friday 11th November). You can see the collective piece below.
The eight community groups who took part in the project are listed below, as well as the local railway station where customers can view their artwork pieces. You can view the individual pieces here.
