The project's aim is to stimulate and support research into conscientious objection to military service during World War One; to help collect and collate related material; create a publicly available database of this research and use it (as well as our existing material) to produce easily available and widely publicised resources for public and educational use.
The project will produce an interpretative audio-visual exhibition based around the commemorative plaque of World War One conscientious objectors who died during the period of their objection and explore the experience of World War One COs in general. Some of the exhibition will be available countrywide.
An expanded virtual version of the exhibition will also be available online in 1915 on a dedicated web site telling the stories of WW1 conscientious objectors and their families and supporters.
A related aim is to promote and support a network of people interested in history and research in this area in particular and who are willing to help with cataloguing and promoting the results of their research. To work in partnership with Local History libraries and local history groups, the University of the Third Age and others. We aim to provide appropriate training, facilitate meetings for researchers to compare notes, co ordinate research, plan future activity and engage with the wider community by offering talks to community groups, associations and schools.
