Canterbury 100 is a collaborative online platform that enables the sharing of stories and experiences of Canterbury people during the First World War. The website aims to connect Cantabrians with their First World War heritage by providing a platform for them to share their family’s wartime experiences through stories, photographs and objects. At the conclusion of the centenary commemorations, these stories are to be archived to serve as a permanent memorial.
Our approach was to create a highly visual website, bringing the memorabilia to the forefront to encourage people to delve deeper. The ‘Explore’ section includes content categories for quick access to items of interest and the results can be filtered with key words.
