Keir Hardie – 100 years on
Baird Museum, Lugar Street, Cumnock
Now - 19th December 2015
Opening hours: Thurs - Sat 11am - 5pm
The exhibition anticipates the 100th anniversary of Keir Hardie’s death in September 2015. East Ayrshire Leisure’s exhibition looks at Hardie’s early years, his influences, his radical politics, causes and opinions, his home and family life, and his legacy as one of the most important political figures of the modern era.
We have been asked to contribute to this through a series of workshops with artist Geraldine Greene using Keir Hardie’s words and the exhibition itself to inspire some new artwork around Cumnock, which will then be photographed and displayed as part of the exhibition.
Please visit the exhibition if possible!
