Project Management of the 'Their Past Your Future'

Resource Pack for Sunderland City Council.

Infinite Arts was commissioned by Sunderland City Council to research and develop an E-Resource Pack using a photographic archive of bomb damage in Sunderland during the Second World War, which is held within Local Studies at the City Library & Arts Centre.

Their Past Your Future is a UK-wide educational project which aims to inspire people of all ages to truly discover the impact of 20th century conflict, and recognise why it is relevant now and in the future.

The project offered the chance for older people to share their memories of the Second World War, and involved participants from;

  • Age Concern
  • Monkwearmouth School
  • Stadium of Light GOAL Project
  • St Anthony’s Girls School
  • Tyne and Wear Museums.

The inter-generational sessions allowed people to look at the photographs and share reminiscences and curiosity. They developed ideas for activities which form part of the new E-Resource Pack which is available through the City Council website. This is also available in hard copy from Sunderland Schools Library Service.
