'Graft, Camaraderie & Community'

Scottish War Blinded's centenary exhibition, titled 'Graft, Camaraderie & Community' featured at Central Library, Edinburgh from 16-30 November 2015.

The exhibition story uses archive material to guide visitors through the development of Scottish War Blinded services which began in 1915 with the provision of rehabilitation and vocational skills training to blinded soldiers returning to Scotland from the Western Front.

The exhibition moves through key developments in the charity's history, including the Linburn Workshops, Queen's Crescent, Glasgow and after-care culminating in a description of current Scottish War Blinded services.

Artefacts, memorabilia and photographs featured alongside the exhibition storyboards.

An audio-guide facility ensured our exhibition is accessible for all, enhancing the learning experience of visitors with and without visual and hearing impairments.
