Protest! In Our Time
A permanent exhibition at The Peace Museum
Opened Thursday 20th July 2017.
Our galleries explore the stories of peace campaigners of the past, those who have protested against nuclear weapons, against war, against militarism. But peaceful protest continues today – against nuclear weapons, against war, against militarism. Women’s rights. Campaigning for a cleaner and greener world. The message remains the same but the struggle continues.
This exhibition tells the stories of those who are campaigning for peace NOW. Protests, demonstrations, vigils, conscientious objection, activism. Come and hear their stories. Find out how peaceful campaigning remains more relevant than ever.
This exhibition is part of a wider project ‘Protesting Now: Collecting for the Future’ which aims to expand The Peace Museum’s 7000 item collection with new objects which tell the stories of modern campaigners. The exhibition is permanent and will continue to change and develop. We are still accepting objects which may be added to this exhibition in the future. Contact staff to discuss further.
