Coming World Remember Me Project

600,000 people died in Belgium during the Great War - soldiers, civilians, men, women, children; enemies, friends. This remarkable project has seen the creation of 600,000 sculptures, one for each of the lives lost. They have been set up in what was no-man's-land  at de Palingbeek, near Ypres.

The installation opened on March 31st 2018 and will remain in place until November 11th this year. You can find out more about it here:
