Creative Centenaries launches website
The Nerve Centre’s Creative Centenaries project has redeveloped and launched its hub website for the Decade of Centenaries ahead of centenary commemorations around the formation of Northern Ireland.
The www.creativecentenaries.org website is delivered as part of Making the Future, a project from the Nerve Centre, National Museums NI, the Public Record Office of Northern Ireland and the Linen Hall Library, supported by the PEACE IV Programme managed by the Special EU Programmes Body.
The Creative Centenaries project brings together information and resources about the Decade of Centenaries and the work of Northern Ireland’s creative sector in commemorating these events. It brings a fresh approach to the study and memory of this defining period, using creativity, knowledge and expertise to deepen a shared understanding of the events and their legacy.
The new online resource features innovative, original content on the events of 1920–1922, providing a holistic and inclusive platform for engaging with the centenary.
Niall Kerr, Making the Future Project Manager, said: “The Creative Centenaries project has served as a focal point for information and resources around engaging with the Decade of Centenaries. As well as developing its own unique content in the form of animations, interactive iBooks and graphic novels, the project has sought to bring attention to the work of the creative sector in commemorating the events of 100 years ago.
“We are delighted to launch this revamped website and to partner with the Centenary Historical Advisory Panel on new content for the website, including an evolving ‘On This Day’ section that will profile and explore some of the seminal moments from throughout the year, allowing visitors to gain a wider understanding of the period.”
