All 17 projects come from higher education institutions. They include:
- A UCD project exploring how the nuns and school-girls at Loreto Convent on St. Stephen’s Green were sequestered in the convent during the 1916 Rising. The funding received from the Irish Research Council will create an open-access digital repository and online exhibition exploring their experiences.
- A project at NUI Maynooth, which will develop digital tools to engage the public in the history of the Battle of Mount Street Bridge. The tools developed will include an augmented-reality audiovisual recreation of the battlefield for tablet computers and smartphones, and will allow members of the public to interact with 3D-printed buildings of the battlefield.
- A symposium and exhibition on the topic of hunger striking, which will be organised by researchers at the University of Limerick, in collaboration with Kilmainham Gaol, Kerry County Museum and Kerry County Library Services.
- A project exploring how Moore Street’s historical significance impacts on urban redevelopment plans, entrepreneurial agendas and trader livelihoods.
‘INCLUSIVE16’, an NUI Galway project aimed at engaging new Irish communities in the national dialogue about 1916.
- An augmented-reality mobile walking tour app, commemorating the role women played in the 1916 Rising.
