Do you have a role to play in the Decade of Anniversaries?
This Creative Centenaries Resources Fair will open up opportunities for those planning and organising events that explore and share our history and heritage.
The day-long, free conference at Titanic Belfast on 5th March will include:
• keynote address
• exhibition stalls
• digital resources
• project presentations
• funding information
• artistic expressions
• networking and partnership opportunities
This event is aimed at community and heritage groups, councils and good relations officers, arts and community organisations and others who are organising events across Ireland in the coming years. Delegates will have the chance to hear from a range of projects and exhibitions, take part in engaging workshops, learn about funding opportunities and establish connections and partnerships with others.
When registering for the event, delegates will have the opportunity to select which workshops they would like to attend, including: What is Commemoration?, Ethical and Shared Remembering or Creative Responses.
What is Commemoration?: This panel based workshop will explore issues such as the purpose you hope to achieve and the long term legacies attached to commemorative events within the Decade of Anniversaries and how this may impact on planning.
Ethical and Shared Remembering: This workshop will examine approaches to commemoration including inclusive and ethical remembering and how interpretations of history shape modern society.
Creative Responses: This workshop will look at artistic and creative approaches to commemorating and remembering events with the Decade of Anniversaries including theatre, poetry, music and more.
