Based in Belfast, where the conflict had such a long lasting and complex effect, The Living Legacies 1914–1918 Engagement Centre will be a focal point for academics and community researchers looking at how WW1 lives on in the modern world, and aims to work with community-led research projects across the UK to help achieve greater levels of outreach and engagement beyond their immediate localities.
The Centre will be able to support such projects with research, developing networks, access to resources and training, information about relevant events and other related projects, such as:
- telling and sharing local storie
- rediscovering the forgotten First World War heritage in our landscapes
- finding out why and where people moved as a result of the war
- expressing stories about the conflict through drama and theatre.
