Advance notice of...
An Exhibition about the Foot and Mouth Crisis 2001
Thursday 31st October, 1st and 2nd November
Old Town Hall, the Shambles, Stroud, Glos
between 9.30am and 5pm. The exhibition aims to extend a deeper understanding of the ongoing trauma, distress and crisis caused by the handling of FMD to a wider public, and to highlight the deeper malaise in farming and the rural economy.
It will feature photographs, paintings, books, childrens' work, poems, cartoons and videos.
A file containing personal stories of what happened to individual farmers and animal owners will be available so that the public can look through this in their own time.
If readers of warmwell feel able to word process their own story and send it ( as a Word attachment) to the organiser, Julia Currie, that would be a great help, but obviously, if that is not possible, she will accept hand-written items.
