Living Legacies 1914-18

The 'Living Legacies 1914-18' public engagement centre is a focal point for connecting academic and community researchers interested in how World War 1 lives on in the twenty-first century world.

Our Centre provides community outreach, engagement and collaboration between research organisations and researchers and community groups—including young people—interested in researching and commemorating World War 1, the broader historical and cultural context of the War, and its continuing legacies and impacts today.
