As part of our ongoing work with the National Archives, we recently worked on materials for their 2021 Commemoration Programme. Included in their programme will be ‘The Treaty, 1921: Records from the Archives’ exhibition (Designed by Epic). Using the Treaty as the centrepiece, this exhibition places significant documents from the collections of the National Archives on public display for the first time. The exhibition will run from 6th December 2021 to 27 March 2022.
The Treaty exhibition is accompanied by a series of commemoration programme initiatives aimed at encouraging historical enquiry and promoting the widest possible interest and use of primary archival sources. The National Archives has commissioned an Artist-in-Residence, John Beattie to engage with its collections, to reflect in imaginative ways on the contemporary resonance of particular episodes from the 1921-23 period.
