The First World War and Community Memory

The performance and screening was at the Brian Friel Theatre to reflect the process of research into local and family histories of the First World War.

The event presented excerpts from performances created in partnership between researchers and facilitators at Queen’s University Belfast and six community groups. The groups explored the history and legacy of the War in their local communities, work that has been transformed into art in the form of performances, films and plays.

Project Lead: Dr Kurt Taroff, from the School of Arts, English and Languages at Queen's University Belfast.
