Honour Who Fell – participatory public art

The Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead have commissioned Creative Junction to create a piece of public art to mark 100 years since the end of the Great War and remember those from the borough who sacrificed their lives.

Honour Who Fell will commemorate the lost lives of the hundreds of people from this area and be installed on Windsor Guildhall’s Corn Market for Armistice Day and throughout the rest of November.

Local residents will be making individual poppies to add to this artwork, inspired by original letters, diaries, photographs and their own hopes about peace now and for the next 100 years.

This is part of a series of events and activities through Heritage Lottery Funded ‘For King and Country’, revealing the stories behind the names of the 200+ war memorials across the Borough – the title of this piece of public art takes its name from an inscription on one of these memorials and echoes the cascade of poppies that will fill Windsor Guildhall.
