Youngsters in Aberdeen are being given the opportunity to contribute to a new exhibition on the sights and sounds of World War One.
Working Life to War Life is an interactive educational project which will allow young people to see how people’s lives were transformed during the conflict.
As part of the scheme, Sounds of War workshops, supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund, are taking place at the Gordon Highlanders Museum this summer.
They will offer youngsters the chance to learn more about the role of the north-east regiment in WW1 using a variety of authentic artifacts.
The collected sounds will then be used as part of an exhibition at the Aberdeen Maritime Museum next year.
Project composer and workshop tutor Robert Aitken said it was a “once in a lifetime” opportunity for young people to help create a surround sound installation.
“The sounds that young people record in the workshops will feature heavily in a vividly brought to life exhibit,” he said.
“There will be a mix of poetic words that will touch the heart to explosions that rock you out of your seat.
“Our intention is to explore the emotional turmoil that war brought for those at home, as well as those at the front in a unique, thought-provoking visitor attraction.”
The free workshops run from Monday, July 28, to Friday, August 1, from 9.45am to 4pm each day. They are aimed at people aged 12-21.
