The First World War and community memory

21 November, 2017, 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

This performance and screening examines research into local and family histories of the First World War. The event will present excerpts from performances created in partnership between researchers and facilitators at Queen’s University Belfast and six community groups (Resurgam Trust, Lisburn; Rathcoole Youth Group; Omagh Live and Learn Group; Tonagh Women’s Group, Lisburn; Bobosh; and Hydebank Wood College).  The groups explored the history and legacy of the War in their local communities, which has been transformed into art in the form of performances, films and plays.

This event is part of the series Belfast celebrates the humanities.
