We are delighted to announce the dates for our Legacies of the First World War Festivals, which will be jointly hosted by the five AHRC-funded WW1 Engagement Centres and held across the UK in 2019. We welcome community organisers, heritage and creative workers, academics, local historians, and members of the public. Each festival will have a unique theme and will be dedicated to reflecting on public history and heritage, exploring the different types of collaborative work that has been done around WW1 subjects since 2014, & to thinking about future/potential collaborations and how community organisations and academics can continue working together to explore all aspects of the past.

We have a limited budget for bursaries to cover the costs of community organisations being able to attend and present their work.

Please contact Ms Nicola Gauld at n.gauld@bham.ac.uk as soon as possible if you require a bursary as these will be allocated on a first-come first-served basis.

Each festival will enable participants and attendees to better understand the challenges and opportunities of collaborative work around history, heritage and commemoration. A series of panel discussions, informal workshops, film screenings, guided walks, and performances will provide an informal and friendly forum for stimulating conversations around co-produced knowledge and critical responses to history and heritage.
