Hands on history: bringing the centenary of Armistice Day to life

Presented by Ms Amy Feldman

Bringing the Centenary of Armistice Day to Life is an interactive way to engage people with South Australia’s World War I history. In a hands-on workshop combining a timeline and tableau the team at Free Thinking Productions provide a unique way to learn about our city’s World War I history, from both the perspective of those who served overseas and those who remained behind.

Amy Feldman was home-schooled and when she was 14 she had a big idea. Recognising the value of archival photographs of the street celebrations on the first Armistice Day in 1918, Amy decided to do something to bring those images to life one hundred years later. Four years older and wiser, and teamed with her mother Kate, she has developed a unique Year 9 curriculum-linked school workshop program to help young people appreciate our World War I history.
