Silent Voices Memorial To Local Sunderland Tragedy

Artist and Participatory Arts Facilitator Lyn Whillians-Killeen partnered with Living History North East in Silent Voices, an arts and history community project to pay tribute to 183 Sunderland children who died in a stampede a the old Victoria Hall theatre.

Lyn worked with community groups, including schoolchildren and adults, as part of the project to decorate holders inscribed with the names of each of the children who sadly died in the tragedy.   The installation of 183 glass jars were exhibited at Sunderland Minster in June.
