The Digital War Memorial

Strike a Light has been checking out some new World War I related resources recently, since we’ll be working with Queenspark Books on their new A Graphic War project which starts in November 2014 and runs until September 2016.

downloadThe Digital War Memorial website is one such inspiring resource which brings together communities and artists across the UK to make unique creative responses to the First World War Centenary.

Using the rich resources of local libraries and archives as the starting point, these new artworks tell the diverse stories of how the First World War touched people’s lives and how it is remembered today.

One section we’ve particularly found touching, and a really great way of engaging younger audiences with the theme, is this page of graffiti art and writings by Lancashire artist Liam Dean. Have a look, it’s moving and modern and yet still relevant to young people.
