First World War Centenary
The 2014-2018 Centenary of the First World War will be marked worldwide.
About the Partnership
The First World War Centenary Partnership is a network of nearly 1,000 local, regional, national and international cultural and educational organisations led by IWM (Imperial War Museums). Together, we will present a vibrant global Programme of cultural events and activities, and digital platforms which will enable millions of people across the world to discover more about life in the First World War.
Being a member of the Partnership gives each one of us a stronger collective voice, visibility through the First World War Centenary brand and website, access to a wealth of expertise and resources and the opportunity to promote our events through a centenary calendar on 1914.org.
Join the Partnership
The Centenary Partnership Extranet is an exclusive site offering to its member organisations:
