About the September Forum

Presented by Dr Ellie Pridgeon, Consultant Archivist

14-18 NOW was the UK’s official arts programme for the First World War centenary, based at the Imperial War Museum in London. Since 2017, project archivists have been cataloguing 10,000s of contemporary digital records, including photographs, films and administrative files. 

This paper, presented by lead archivist Dr Ellie Pridgeon, will provide an overview of some of the key 14-18 NOW projects – for instance ‘The Poppies’, Peter Jackson’s film ‘They Shall not Grow Old’, and Danny Boyle’s ‘Pages of the Sea’. Ellie will also provide an overview of some of the cutting-edge archive technology used for the project, and consider the pros and cons of using technical processes for archiving in the twenty-first century.
