Decade of Centenaries

We run a number of projects in areas of importance to good community relations, such as the "Decades of Anniversaries" partnered with by the Heritage Lottery Fund.

About the Decade of Anniversaries

The Decade of Anniversaries refers to the period of the Home Rule Crisis and the Ulster Covenant Campaign in 1912 through to Partition and the establishment of two parliaments in Ireland in 1921/22.  The Community Relations Council and Heritage Lottery Fund organised the first 'Remembering the Future' conference that took place on 21 March 2011.  This began a continuing conversation about the issue of remembering in public space.  To support this CRC and HLF developed and promoted a widely endorsed set of principles.  A series of conferences and resources fairs were organised with partners.  Publications and videos developed include Remembering the Future 11 Session Lecture Series, a Toolkit of case studies, videos and publications on the three conferences.  We produced these in order to promote balanced understanding of difficult history, using the historical facts and drawing on different narratives.
