Echo Chamber: Voices of Conscience – a sound and photography exhibition marking 100 years of conscientious objection – owes its inspirational existence to Fiona Meadley, Dom Thomas and Ruth Davey. The exhibition includes information submitted by living relatives of Conscientious Objectors from WW1: it was a privilege to contribute to this history, with our performance of the story of Dorothy and Archibald.

Archibald and Dorothy
And thank you and Rachel for your engaging performances.
I estimate we had about 200 visitors over the weekend, and they donated £178 to stroud refugee aid. And the event was extensively covered on bbc radio Gloucestershire on Remembrance Sunday. I will forward you a news clip broadcast at 9 am. It brought in many visitors, and Sunday was our busiest day.
I’ve made a 60 second video clip with the radio broadcast about echo chamber and posted it on YouTube. You are welcome to use it in your blog.
