14-18 NOW worked with arts and heritage partners across the UK to commission new artworks from leading contemporary artists, musicians, designers and performers. Through our Learning and Engagement programme, we supported our partners to develop work which demonstrates the powerful impact of arts and heritage learning.
Take a look at some of the projects we have supported.
14-18 NOW, worked with Norwich Writers Centre, Norfolk and Norwich Festival and BBC Voices in response to the commission Fierce Light. This project enabled over 1,000 young people to engage with the themes of the First World War, through school and community workshops and film-making sessions alongside 30 partners and professionals.View Project
Based on the ambitious comic anthology ‘Traces of the Great War’, the online learning resources of this 14-18 NOW shared commission offer teachers of Key Stage 3 English, History and Humanities (and curricular equivalent in the Nations) a framework to study aspects of the First World War and its legacy through narrative, discussion and artistic expression.View Project
