WW1 Poetry Slam
12 A-Level Drama students from schools throughout east Belfast will be working together to create a unique WW1 Poetry Slam event for this year’s festival. The students will have one week of intense creative workshops to create and produce this one-off event. The students will be using research from Campbell College’s WW1 commemoration project, The Men Behind the Glass, which has been supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund in partnership with PRONI. Booking essential as places limited.
17th August 2018, 10am - 1pm
National Museums NI and Living Legacies, in collaboration with the Imperial War Museum, will explore the breadth of women’s roles in different arenas– from factories and hospitals to homes and churches, representing their political activism, front-line service and home front experiences, against the backdrop of the suffrage movement and greater prominence of women in public life. Hear about the role women played during the First World War locally and the contribution they made across Ireland to the war effort and the struggle for equality.
