Are you aged between 12 and 15 years old? Do you love cracking codes and puzzles, creating comics, or doing both?

Then come along to Great War Dundee’s unique event on Saturday 22nd June. The event will make you think differently about World War One, and how it relates to all of us today. Your ideas could even contribute to the development of a new comic about the Great War, which will be launched later this year.

The event will start outside The McManus: Dundee’s Art Gallery and Museum. Participants will then take a walk around different locations in Dundee city centre that link to Dundee’s war effort, locations they will identify by deciphering Caesar cipher clues released via Twitter. The walk will take around 1 hour to 1 hour 30 minutes, and participants will be accompanied by members of the Great War Dundee Partnership. Parents and carers are welcome to accompany the walk. After a short break for lunch you will then go to the Vision Building and work with a team from the Dundee Comics Creative Space to create your very own comic, with a Great War theme.

The Great War Dundee Partnership secured money to deliver the Hidden Histories project from the Heritage Lottery Fund. The project is engaging with groups and individuals from Dundee, to support them in learning how and why WW1 impacted both then and now on the city and its people.
