The penultimate episode of Series 2 (!!) is a conversation
between Ilana, Hannah, Helen, Lorna, Marwa and Katy who were all
involved in artist Bobby Baker's Great and Tiny War project last
year. The project, commissioned as part of 14-18-NOW, a series of
World War I centenary art commissions, took place in an immersive
installation in a house on Sidney Grove in Newcastle and featured
an audio guided tour. Several of the women in this recording acted
as hosts on the tour of the house. The project aimed to highlight
the role of women during wartime and the impact of war on mental
"Great & Tiny War serves as a monument to their unacknowledged private struggles and personal strength, and will resonate with anyone whose family has been touched by conflict."
