Danny Boyle’s Pages of the Sea, Porthmeor Studios, St Ives, Sun 11 Nov
On selected beaches around the UK, over the course of several hours, a portrait of an individual from the First World War will emerge from the sand. And then, as the tide rises, be washed away as we take a moment to say a collective goodbye. Poet Carol Ann Duffy has written a poem especially for the event, to be read by individuals, families and communities on the day. You can also get involved in creating artwork in the sand using stencils of portraits at the beaches.
