‘Legacies of the First World War’ Shared Heritage -
Legacies of the First War, 18th – 22nd May 2019

What’s it all about?

To mark the end of the Centenary of WW1, a week of free public activities and events will be held across Northern Ireland, on the theme of Shared Heritage. The idea is to bring together heritage groups, projects and stakeholders to share experiences of exploring the legacies of WW1. These legacies connect the past with the present and we want to use Shared Heritage as a way of connecting communities from all across these islands, to help deepen our understanding and appreciation of the war in Britain and Ireland and its significance to us today. Our week-long Shared Heritage events are open to all, and cover topics such as archaeology and landscape, drama and creative arts, digital technologies, museums and exhibitions, led by the ‘Living Legacies 1914-18’ engagement centre and our partners. You can now sign up to the events by following the links below:
