14–18 NOW: Five Years of Extraordinary Art Experiences

Spread over five years, 14–18 NOW was a programme of extraordinary arts experiences linking people to the First World War and included painting, photography, sculpture, poetry, theatre, dance, installation, film and other performance pieces. It was one of the largest public art commissions ever, and led to the creation of over 325 artworks, which have been seen by more than 30 million people. It featured artists included Gillian Wearing, Rachel Whiteread, Jeremy Deller, Peter Jackson and Danny Boyle. Jenny Waldman is Director of the 14–18 NOW arts programme and was previously the Creative Producer of the London 2012 Festival, the finale of the Cultural Olympiad for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
