In March 2017, Stratagem was engaged by the Community Relations Council (CRC) and Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) to undertake a survey of the Decade of Centenaries to elucidate the level of awareness, understanding and plans for commemoration of these politically significant years in the history of the island of Ireland.
Given the range and significance of these centenaries to date and those occurring between 2017-2023, it is timely to take stock of how communities, young and old are engaged in a forward looking process of marking anniversaries.
This research builds on the work of a survey previously conducted in 2014 with 100 organisations. It will now take into account the experience and practice to date, the methodologies of past programmes, plans to mark events and acknowledge the years ahead on a thematic basis and what information or support needs respondents require.
The role played by the ‘Principles for remembering in Public Space’ and the usefulness/knowledge of the resources, guidance and events was included in this latest survey.
