Creative Centenaries Exhibition Opens in National Library of Ireland

Creative Centenaries has partnered with the National Library of Ireland (NLI) in Dublin on the installation of new and interactive technology in their World War Ireland exhibition. 

An immersive touchscreen experience recreates the Creative Centenaries #MakingHistory 1916 Exhibition that ran at the Ulster Museum in 2016. Visitors can take a virtual tour of the exhibition which examines how destruction and creativity came together in 1916 to change Irish society forever.
 
Graphic novels by the Nerve Centre project on the Easter Rising, Battle of the Somme, sinking of the Lusitania, Francis Ledwidge and Alice Milligan are also available for visitors to NLI. A suite of interactive iBooks focused on Ireland at the turn of the 20th century have also been installed and are available for visitors to explore. 
 
The National Library of Ireland's World War Ireland: Exploring the Irish Experience takes a look at the Irish experience during the war through collections of letters, diaries, recruitment posters, newspapers and leaflets. It features a focus area on the events of 1917 including the Battle of Messines and the shifting political and cultural landscape on the home front.
