we’re here because we’re here reached over 30 million people across the UK. The work was specially commissioned by 14-18 NOW, the UK’s arts programme for the First World War Centenary commemorations.
National Theatre Wales was one of 26 organisations that collaborated on the project. In Wales, we collaborated with Aberystwyth Arts Centre, Pontio and Volcano, co-ordinating 100 volunteers in Bangor, on Snowdonia, in Aberystwyth, Swansea and Port Talbot.
This was the first time so many theatres have worked together on a UK-wide participation project, making it the largest arts participation project ever staged in the country.
