Marking 100 years since the end of the First World War, this exhibition explores the immediate impact of the conflict on British, German and French art. As the first exhibition to examine the culture of memorials alongside new developments in post-war art it looks at how artists responded to the physical and psychological scars left on Europe.
Art was used in many ways in the tumultuous period after the end of the war, from documenting its destructive impact, to the building of public memorials and as a social critique.
Recently, we shared with you the inspiring story of Sam Doyle who has raised over £7000 in aid of PTSD Resolution. To date, Sam has walked 3000 miles of Britain's coastline but has just hung up his walking boots as he prepares for a new chapter in his life: becoming a father. Here, Sam shares with us some of the highs and lows of his journey and his message to those suffering from PTSD:
I don't actually like walking but I knew I had to set out on this journey. I knew that the therapeutic aspect of walking would help me overcome my PTSD symptoms - and it did. Walking has really sorted my head out. It forced me to tell my story over and over as I moved from town to town, spreading the word about PTSD Resolution. Talking to people every day has really improved my self-confidence, too. The walk was like a complete restart for my life. It was just what I needed.Read More
Recently, we talked with Sam Booth, a veteran who was treated by PTSD Resolution earlier this year. Sam, who now works as a facilities manager, got in touch to share his incredible story of transformation with us and his motivation to fundraise in aid of PTSD Resolution:
I spent eight years working as a submariner in the Royal Navy. I loved my job - I was away for four or five months of the year and visited plenty of foreign ports. But after seven years' service, I decided to leave. My wife was expecting our second child and having missed so much of my first born's life, I wanted to be there.Read More
