The Primary school pupil’s research took them to visit the Local Studies Collection at Swindon Central Library and they explored everyday life in WW1 with Swindon Museum and Art Gallery. Their journey of discovery was shared in film and photography.

The young people worked with Gurch Singh and Sherylee Houssein to voice their thoughts and feelings throughout their research, which has been captured in a film documenting their learning.

The Safe Haven project was part of A Portrait of Swindon exhibition based at Swindon Museum and Art Gallery. Due to Safe Haven's warm reception we are now holding a follow up exhibition at the Swindon Central Library from the 2nd May - 31st May 2017! It also follows our 100 stories project, a previous WW1 media initiative supported by HLF for young people delivered by Create studios in 2015. The 100 stories website holds films, a documentary and the images captured as well as the 100 Stories blog, documenting the timeline of events that took place during the project.
