Support for Community Groups exploring Peace Heritage

Can YOU help to build up the big picture of Wales' peace heritage over the last 100 years - help us to discover the movements that have shaped Wales and our own communities? Through 2016-17, Wales for Peace are building a Peace Map charting the hidden histories of a generation lost in WW1, objectors to war, survivors who went on to work for peace, and movements that have shaped the Wales we know today.  

Does your community have a story, or a Hidden History to be discovered and shared? We can provide community groups and volunteers with support, training, help accessing funding, or with sharing your memories directly. Contact our Coordinators via walesforpeace@wcia.org.uk.
