The Linen Memorial guestbook, Welcome:

The Linen Memorial acts as a contribution to the healing of post-conflict Northern Ireland.

The artist acknowledges that there are differing views on Northern Ireland's 'shared public mourning', ideas about forgiveness and reconciliation, and different ways to heal from trauma "through remembering" the Northern Ireland Troubles.

Sculptor-Designer Lycia Trouton states that this non-traditional public art memorial about The Troubles is a community service.

No monies or profit has been made from the project. Any artist's fees, such as from The Canada Council of the Arts 2001 or The Biennale of Linen 2011, have been used towards the installation itself and to continue touring this Irish Troubles artwork - an unheroic monument.

HOW TO GET THERE

Visit The Linen Memorial this year in 2011, on Wednesdays to Sundays 9:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m, from June 21st The Day of Private Reflection to September 5th at The Biennale of Flax and Linen Art and Design. This Biennale is being held in small towns along the St. Lawrence river in Quebec, Canada.
