Partition — Graphic Novel Launch
Find out more and access Partition — A Journey Through the Archives, a new graphic novel from Nerve Centre’s Creative Centenaries project which will be officially launched during Good Relations Week.
This is a Key Stage 3 curriculum linked resource that looks at some of the events up to and surrounding the partition of Ireland and the formation of two new states and explores the role that multiple people played in those events.
The story uses archive collections from institutions across the island of Ireland, including Ulster Museum, Public Record Office of Northern Ireland and the National Library of Ireland, as a means of exploring our past and showing its complexity. The story is supported by suggested creative educational tasks that can be used in the classroom.
Partition — A Journey Through the Archives, has been developed by the Creative Centenaries project which produces innovative resources around the Decade of Centenaries and important historical events. The new resource has been funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund through the Shared History project.
Further graphic novels highlighting the roles of real people and stories from throughout the 1912 – 1922 period are available to access for free from www.creativecentenaries.org/resources
