Woolf College, University of Kent

A day-long reflective workshop at the University of Kent’s Canterbury campus

The main purpose of this workshop is to bring together a range of community groups, drawn from across the South East, to reflect upon their involvement within their various First World War commemorative activities.

Participants on the day will have a fantastic opportunity to hear a presentation from Professor Sarah Lloyd of the ‘Everyday Lives in War’ Engagement Centre (University of Hertfordshire) on community and academic partnerships around the First World War centenary, followed by presentations from a number of groups who have worked on centenary projects.

Participants will not only have an opportunity to contribute views on their experience of working on a First World War project but can share their thoughts on the wider legacy of the centenary commemorations.

Attending will provide delegates with a chance to connect with fellow volunteers and groups, as well as contribute towards the ‘Reflections on the Centenary: Learning and Legacies for the Future’ research findings.

Community Groups who will be presenting on the day include:

Apsaras Art: Every poster tells a story – WW1 and women’s roles.

Screen South: 100 miles for 100 years.

The King’s Theatre, Southsea: Theatres of War.
