The 306: Day

Silence and Song

Silence and Song is inspired by the themes of the National Theatre of Scotland, Perth Theatre and Stellar Quines’ forthcoming production The 306: Day, part of 14-18 NOW, the UK’s arts programme for the First World War centenary.

Silence and Song features a variety of free participatory events inviting women to help create an installation which will tour with The 306: Day.

The activities include filming, poetry, song, embroidery and drama workshops and take place on 23 March and 20 April at Glasgow Women’s Library.

These will culminate in a sharing event on 29 April which will also include a panel discussion The 306: Day - Women in World War One.

The 306: Day - Women in World War One

These talks will focus on the making of The 306: Day and the history and research behind the women and families featured in the piece. The event will also discuss the role women played on the front line and the home front during the war.

The speakers will include Oliver Emanuel (writer) and Gareth Williams (composer) as well as other researchers and historians in the field of Women and WW1. It will be chaired by Jane Fowler, formerly Co-ordinator of BBC Scotland’s WW1 Programming.
