Monument creation has always interested me, even more so now living in a Montserrat. The most popular monument was the War Memorial in Plymouth - the town and the monument were slowly destroyed by a decade of volcanic activity. Now occupying the north of the island I am curious as to the conceptualisation of a new monument...for the country, its experiences etc. This is a challenge that requires great social input not just within Montserrat but from its volcanic diaspora.

Here is one of my favourite monuments, at the Heroes Park, Jamaica - designed by a friend/mentor Jacquiann Lawton of Compass Workshop
