Last Post Event during the Gallipoli Centenary 20-26 April 2015
Funding and FREE Resources for WW1 Arts & Heritage Project - The Last Post Project
Community organisations and Schools can apply for up to £200, and access a wide range of resources, including a new education/schools pack when delivering a Last Post Event during the Gallipoli Centenary 20-26 April 2015. Community groups, families, schools and a wide range of other organisations are being invited to research their local WW1 story and share their findings in a local commemorative event where the Last Post can be played on an instrument of choice, transforming commemoration into a community event, and enlarging our understanding of WW1 with personal stories. Our comprehensive toolkit has lots of ideas for projects, marketing materials and other resources that turn running an event into an easy process with the help of our regional project manager. Our songbook also has lots of music from the era for groups interested in bringing a musical element to their centenary event.
Finance is being awarded on a first come/first served basis, with groups displaying creativity, an inter-generational focus, and uncovering new stories qualifying for the full amount of £200. Please get in touch with our Northern Ireland Project Manager Cathie McKimm if you're interested firstname.lastname@example.org 07874 023528 or attend one of our Information Evenings coming up soon: Monday 30th March Carrickfergus Library 7-9 pm and Omagh Library Tuesday 31st March 7-9pm - find out about Information Evenings on our website where it only takes 5 minutes to register your event and be considered for funding. http://www.thelastpostproject.org.uk
