Dumfriesshire Teenagers Revisit History of the Scottish Covenant

That the Parliament commends what it considers the thought-provoking exhibition of films and photographs made with a group of Dumfriesshire teenagers charting their response to theĀ events of the Scottish Covenant;

recognises that this collaborative project was led by the National Galleries of Scotland Communities Outreach project in partnership with Dumfries and Galloway Council Museums, Youth Justice and Countryside Ranger Services; understands that Civil War Cinema marks the third instalment of The Nation//Live, a nationwide project that aims to explore key moments in Scottish history; further understands that the teenagers were encouraged to explore the graves and monuments of the Covenanting period of the 17th century, when communities in the south west of Scotland took to the hills to hold religious services, and question their relevance to their lives today; congratulates the pupils who took part, the artist, Sarah Forrest, and filmmaker, Daniel Warren, and encourages all those who can to visit the exhibition, which runs until 8 June 2013 in the Bakers Oven, Dumfries.
