Patriotism Is Not Enough

Throughout 2015 CSCA worked on a University of Salford research initiative Ideas4Ordsall, fostering creative activities by supporting people with ideas. ‘Patriotism Is Not Enough’ is one of the projects we helped to deliver;

An attendee of Sacred Trinity Church David Winston wanted to mark the centenary of the death of a previous parishioner honored on a memorial outside the church; Edith Cavell, a World War 1 nurse was shot by the Germans for helping wounded soldiers escape after being treated in her Belgian hospital.


David spoke extensively across Salford and Manchester about her life and death, and was interviewed by BBC North West during the Commemoration Event to mark her passing 100 years ago on 12th October 2015.


He continues to give talks and contributed pieces to nursing newsletters and church diocese communications

David also commissioned two artists, Suzanne Smith and Harriet Morgan to who work with a local school on an art project.


The resulting artwork celebrates her famous statement prior to execution, and was unveiled by the pupils at the Commemoration event.


A booklet about the school work is shown below;
