IWM has created a War and Conflict Subject Specialist Network (SSN), to build capacity, connections and confidence in the cultural heritage sector.

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.
