Programme Impact and Learning

From 2014-19 WCIA's Wales for Peace programme has worked with thousands of volunteers, community organisations and partners to uncover - and develop from scratch a narrative for - Wales' 'Peace Heritage' from WW1 to today. This programme archive collates quarterly activity reports, project plans, monitoring and evaluation resources for shared learning and future reference.

This page is a reference point for project team, partners and funders to access reports and planning documents as the Wales for Peace project progresses; and for links to key portals (some document links are in Office365, which may require login).

WCIA's External Evaluation is being coordinated by Dr Jenny Kidd of Cardiff University (JOMEC - School of Journalism, Media & Culture - see blog) and the AHRC 'Voices of War & Peace' WW1 Engagement Centre project, supported by Carrie Westwater and student researchers. They are also undertaking evaluation for 14-18NOW's Poppies Tour, so it is hoped the findings from Wales for Peace can contribute towards wider sector learning from the centenary period.

HLF funded project activities ended in Dec 2018. From Jan-July 2019, WCIA will be organising records and archive materials for future reference, curating publication(s) and digital resources for future access, and working with external evaluators from Cardiff University to submit our impact reporting to the National Lottery Heritage Fund.

Under WCIA's new 2019-24 Strategy, the legacy of the Wales for Peace project will form the foundation of WCIA's new 'Global Action' Programme, seeking to support a new generation of internationalists to take action, inspired and informed by the achievements of peacemakers past.
