Nerve Centre awarded Shared History Funding to mark 2021 centenary

12 Mar 2021

Nerve Centre has been awarded funding for its Creative Centenaries project to mark the centenary of Northern Ireland.


The Shared History Fund, which the National Lottery Heritage Fund is distributing on behalf of the Northern Ireland Office, supports groups in marking the Centenary of Northern Ireland in 2021 in thoughtful, inclusive and engaging ways.

The Creative Centenaries Digital Engagement Programme will encourage a wide range of people to explore the history and heritage of the foundation of Northern Ireland.


The Creative Centenaries website will serve as a hub of information, events, news and resources and will highlight the work of the creative, cultural and heritage sectors across Northern Ireland and beyond.


New content on the website will be developed in partnership with the Centenary Historical Advisory Panel; a series of high profile webinar events will take place throughout the year and a new graphic novel exploring the legacy of the period will also be produced.
