Remembering WW1

Secret City Arts has completed a series of projects between 2014-2018, exploring the First World War and how we remember it now it is out of living memory. Our most recent project was Peace and Remembrance, funded by HLF. We wanted to find out how communities decided on the memorials which are now familiar landmarks. We produced a film which you can click to watch here.

You can also click here to see our Peace and Remembrance leaflet which shows some of the archive materials we worked with, and lots of ideas to explore how communities reached a decision about how to remember the First World War
