From 2014 to 2019 nations, communities and individuals of all ages came together to remember the lives of those who lived, fought and died in the First World War.

Through the First World War Centenary Partnership, over 4,000 organisations presented a vibrant global programme of cultural events, exhibitions, activities and online resources, which engaged with millions of people across the world.

Frequently Asked Questions
What next for Partnerships at IWM?

IWM will continue to work with organisations across the world, to tell the human stories of lives engulfed in war, and show how conflict has shaped the world in which we all live.

We are delighted to have been awarded funding from Arts Council England and Art Fund for the War and Conflict Subject Specialist Network. The Network is open to all not-for-profit organisations and groups within the cultural heritage sector, who look at stories from the First World War to the present day. We will offer support and guidance through free online resources, and organise networking events to encourage collaboration and the sharing good practice.
