What is National Memory – Local Stories?

National Memory – Local Stories is a creative participation project, funded by the Paul Hamlyn Foundation, and led by the National Portrait Gallery, London, in partnership with Media 19 and five national and local area museums across the UK: National Museums Northern Ireland, National Museums Scotland, Amgueddfa Cymru - National Museum Wales, The Rifles Berkshire and Wiltshire Museum and Redbridge Museum, London.

The project explores how collection objects with local stories can inspire young people to make their own work and deepen their engagement with the complexities of the First World War during this period of the centenary commemorations.
