The Shrine was created to ensure that the sacrifices of Victorians during the First World War would never be lost on future generations. The Shrine facilitates public and private remembrance and provides a lens through which to examine events, motivations, responses to and consequences of war. Memorial museums are increasingly seen as integral to peace processes and reconciliation after conflict. During the centenary of the First World War, it is timely to ask what more can we contribute to foster peace and reconciliation. Join a panel comprising of a young veteran, an academic, a peace theorist and a curator to explore these questions.
