IWM works in partnership with local, national and international organisations to deliver our shared strategic aims more effectively, and with greater impact. Through mutual partnerships we support the work of the wider cultural sector, reach new audiences, and develop our collections, ensuring they are shared with the world.
Our work during the First World War Centenary showed us that partnership working is transformational. Building on this track record, the War and Conflict Subject Specialist Network will continue to support organisations working with 20th and 21st century conflict.
In 2020 we will publish a new Partnerships Strategy which will outline our ambitious plans for the next five years.
War and Conflict Subject Specialist Network
Building on the success of the First World War Centenary Partnership, the SSN is open to not-for-profit organisations and groups who look at stories linked to conflict, from the First World War to the present day.
First World War Centenary
November 2018 saw the culmination of almost ten years of activity to commemorate the centenary of the First World War. Across this decade, IWM brought together thousands of organisations and millions of people across the world to remember the lives of those who fought and died in the conflict.
