Inspired by the millions of letters sent between the home front and the front line during World War I, this multi sensory installation will comprise of thousands of messages, housed in origami hearts, individually created by members of the public.
During the six months of the project, from 31 July - 10 November, visitors to the National Memorial Arboretum will be able to contribute to the installation and watch and hear the piece grow, shaped by the many voices who have contributed to it.
The Heartfelt Messages will remember the sacrifice made by the British Armed Forces at Passchendaele and their families at home. Communications often kept soldiers' spirits up and reminded them of their support from loved ones. The messages will be displayed at the Arboretum throughout the Passchendaele commemorations.
