The Letters 1916 project will be showcased in Belfast on May 28 with a series of talks and presentations. 

Letters 1916 is Ireland's first public humanities project and is creating a crowd-source digital collection of letters written around the time of the Easter Rising with a timeframe from November 1, 1915 to October 31, 1916.

PRONI will host the event which will give people a chance to hear and learn about the project including how they can get involved with creating a digital archive. Attendees are encouraged to bring letters from the period to be digitised and added to the Letters 1916 archive. 

The evening will also include talks from Professor Susan Schreibman (Maynooth University), Ian Montgomery (Public Record Office of Northern Ireland), Stephen Scarth (Public Record Office of Northern Ireland) and Jason Burke (East Belfast & The Great War).

The event is free to attend and includes a reception.
