UHArts, based at the University of Hertfordshire, is launching its new vision to produce contemporary touring theatre for young audiences inspired by the work of our world class academic researchers.
In order to give as many theatre makers and performance artists an opportunity to become involved, we are launching a £3,000 grant to develop new ideas that emanate from the key themes of Everyday Lives in War, our current research project on the impacts of the First World War. The grant is supported by the Diamond Fund.
Everyday Lives in War is an initiative launched by the Heritage Hub based at the School of Humanities. It is one of 5 national engagement centres, focusing on key themes:
- First World War food and farming
- Theatre and entertainment
- Conscientious objection and military tribunals
- Supernatural beliefs
- Family relationships
- Cartoons, trench publications and popular culture
