Conversation Cafes – Women in the Great War

Thanks to Gateways to the First World War academic Dr Anne Logan who attended our July Conversation Cafes session (for the Fabrica gallery led The Boys on the Plaque project).

This took place at the Rare Books Archive at Jubilee Library (Thanks to the Brighton and Hove Libraries and Information Service for this) and explored and shared the changing role of women in the First World War. It was a fascinating way to find out more about life for women on the home front between 1914-1918.

We followed this up with a visit to a graffiti themed WWI memorial based in the Youth section of the library which was created by a local artist with young people from The Foyer, Brighton for The Boys in the Plaque project and refers to those who fell in World War I who are mentioned on the plaque based at Fabrica gallery (once the Holy Trinity Church).

This memorial was installed as part of BFest, a Youth Festival in the city which took place in May and June 2016.

This project is supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
