Learning Resources

This resource is intended primarily for young people. Selected objects from the National Portrait Gallery and partner museums provide visual evidence of the War in its local, national and international contexts. Each object commentary is accompanied by enquiries for shared discussion, and follow-up activities for self-directed study. Relevant links are included to the creative workshops and participating artists' work to extend concepts and ideas.


Use this toolkit to find out more about the National Memory – Local Stories project model and lessons learned.

The toolkit provides insights into project practice and guidance on how to work with artists and engage young people. Voices from participants and partners animate the guidance and stimulate ideas. It aims to support planning and inspire future participative projects which explore historical anniversaries.
