We’re really chuffed to see our First World War project, We Are Poppy, featured on the Heritage Fund website – alongside other brilliant projects – if you’re looking for something to feed your brain and soul, there are some amazing online events, workshops, videos and podcasts listed, many created by community-focused organisations like Make (Good) Trouble.
We Are Poppy was co-created by teens and was completed during the pandemic – much of it through Zoom workshops and brainstorms. Our team worked incredibly hard and created a thoughtful, innovative and insightful project that opened a window on the lives of women living through the First World War, looking into how women’s experiences affected their mental heath. These are the hidden histories of that war.
Other projects from the list include Cardigan Bay Marine Wildlife Centre’s live daily dolphin watch (5am to 11pm) and Alexandra Palace’s free online photography project for young people aged 16-24 (you can sign up now!).
Huge thanks to the Heritage Fund and, if you play the National Lottery, thanks to you too. Your contribution made this project possible.
