Support for Community Groups exploring Peace Heritage

Does your community have a story to tell, or a Hidden History to be discovered and shared? WCIA and our Wales for Peace project partners can provide community groups and volunteers with support, training, help accessing funding, or with sharing your memories directly. Contact our Coordinators in North and South Wales via walesforpeace@wcia.org.uk; or explore our online Hidden Histories Toolkit and supporting resources.

TRAINING FOR COMMUNITY GROUPS

IDEAS FOR COMMUNITY AND GROUP PROJECTS


Our 'Hidden Histories' toolkit touches on a wide range of ways in which individuals and small groups can work together to produce written, digital and arts projects.

EXHIBITIONS and EVENTS


Exhibitions and Displays

An exhibition or display in a community centre, school or local museum is a great way to bring together a range of stories gathered by volunteers or students, and present these together using different media - photos, writing, digital screens and artwork.

Public Events

You could hold a community event to bring together stories and presentations as a platform for individuals to share their hidden history projects. This could be a open evening, public debate, cluster / schools conference, exhibition launch or reception at an event such as the Eisteddfod.

PUBLICATIONS and BROADCASTS


Publications

You could draw projects together into a publication that tells the story not only of the hidden histories you are uncoverering, but of those who have researched them. It could be a collection of short stories, a coffee table book, doen through a publisher, or self-published.

Broadcasts for Radio and TV
