Name of creator
In response to changing dynamics in Abernyte, the Abernyte Heritage Group was established in the mid 1980s as part of a drive to celebrate and retain local identity. The group was composed of longstanding residents and recent arrivals to the village and was involved in a number of projects. In 1988 the Group undertook its first project, Abernyte portrait of a Perthshire village in 1988, and in 1992 created a village collage. In 1996, the group decided to undertake an oral history study which saw them interview Abernyte residents and commit to tape their experiences and memories.
