In these times we need to find new ways to remember.
As part of their work for Atlas Pandemica, Robbie and Jo have produced ‘Marking Loss’. ‘Marking Loss’ is a book that responds to the limitations that the Covid-19 restrictions have placed on the ways in which people can gather together to mark a loved ones passing.
There are 40 ideas to be used, modified or as for inspiration for marking loss during the restrictions imposed by Covid. When restrictions have been lifted the ideas can be used with larger groups of family and friends.
The ‘Marking Loss’ books have gone to all Funeral Directors around Dumfries and Galloway and will be offered free to bereaved relatives.
The book is also available as a download (below) for anyone to access.
‘Marking Loss’ and ‘Shoreline to Shoreline‘ are Robbie and Jo’s work for Atlas Pandemica.
Atlas Pandemica consists of 10 creatively led investigations, each exploring a theme highlighted by life during the Covid pandemic in Dumfries and Galloway. Each investigation is designed to encourage innovative approaches in charting the changes brought about by Covid, and to navigate the way forward into a more hopeful and shared future. (June 2020 – April 2021) As part of Atlas Pandemica, Robbie and Jo have been commissioned to research and respond to the impact of COVID on grief and loss. Robbie and Matt Baker from The Stove Network are Co-Curating Atlas Pandemica which is focussing on Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland.
