Past Present continues

It’s been a busy time for Past Present, over the past few weeks several activities have taken place that highlight interest in this fascinating project. Project Manager Juliette Buss and Lighthouse’s Programme Curator Jamie Wyld spoke at the Imperial War Museum’s conference, Challenging History. Artist Hannah Brady has been out and about with young people, creating a collection of World War 2 images for an augmented reality app. And there was a teacher’s INSET day, where Lives at War was presented to Brighton and Hove’s history teachers.
