Centenary Workshops

As a contribution to the broader debate on Centenary commemoration and celebration, BCRC organised a series of four workshops during the period January-March 2016. These were all well received and BCRC aims to continue organising events relevant to dealing with the past that reflect the diversity of our society and which encourage increased respect and understanding for different perspectives on history.
