Educational outreach has long been a hugely important part of what we do and we delivered courses and workshops across Ulster which have highlighted the complexity of our past and encouraged others to explore it for themselves.

The Foundation has an impressive record of working with the community in Northern Ireland to unlock the past, thereby contributing to peace-building and reconciliation, and showing that history can be a bridge, rather than a barrier to community integration.

During the ‘Decade of Centenaries’, which provided opportunities to look back on the events of 1912–22, and reflect on their legacy for today, we worked on several major projects relating to the First World War and the theme of remembrance.

We place a strong emphasis on introducing members of the public to the archives, in particular the Public Record Office of Northern Ireland, where, with our guidance, they have an opportunity to handle original documents and try to make sense of them.
