These two days form the Women & War Festival which will reflect on history and heritage with a focus on the experiences of women in World War One. Share in some of the exciting projects that have taken place since 2014 and consider how community organisations and academics can continue working together to explore aspects of the past and increase women’s visibility.
The festival will support participants and attendees to better understand the challenges and opportunities of collaborative work around history, heritage and commemoration. A series of panel discussions, workshops, film screenings, and performances will provide an informal and friendly forum for stimulating conversations around co-produced knowledge and critical responses to history and heritage.
We welcome community organisers, heritage and creative workers, academics, local historians, and members of the public.
