The last in a series of walking sessions that aim to memorialise North Ayrshire residents’ “unique” pandemic experiences will be taking off next week.

Part of the Greenspace Scotland’s Remembering Together programme, the walk will set off on Tuesday October 25 at 1pm from Kilwinning Library.

Coordinated by Glasgow-based creative team Ice Cream Architecture and Irvine-based artist Matthew Donnelly, the walks will each take around an hour and will include a non-mandatory creative activity.

Ice Cream Architecture’s Rachael Kelly said: “We have had a tremendous response so far and are grateful to each and every person across North Ayrshire who has taken the time to share their story with us.

“The guided walks will be centred around three themes - memories, ideas, and thoughts and will be a slow and leisurely pace – nothing too strenuous.

“We will be more than happy to welcome you along if you simply want to listen to everyone else’s stories and be part of the unique experience.”

Next week’s walk is one of three, with the others having taken place on Tuesday October 18 from the Beattie Library in Stevenston at 1.30pm and Wednesday October 19 at 1pm from Gateside in Beith.

Other activities throughout North Ayrshire include creative memory workshops held in September and an ongoing online map of memories that is still open to contributions.

A community memorial design will be created from the experiences shared during the walks and other project activities.

Matthew Donnelly said: "We use our senses to create and store memories so we will be engaging in the guided walking sessions to remember together and provide local people with a chance to learn about and reflect upon the unique and positive experiences from the pandemic, not just those of sacrifice and loss.”

Remembering Together first launched in March 2022 and receives funding support from the Scottish Government.

The programme aims to use art projects to allow people to express and memorialise their feelings towards and experiences during the pandemic.
