Protesting Now: Collecting for the Future
Have you been involved in any recent peaceful protests, campaigns or marches? If so, then we would like to hear from you.
The Peace Museum is planning a NEW permanent contemporary peaceful protest exhibition, entitled ‘Protest! In our time’. The exhibition is set to open on Wednesday 20th July and will tell the story of peaceful protests and protesters from the beginning of the 21st century until the present day.
But, we need your help! We are looking for banners, placards, posters, written accounts, photographs, videos, artworks … any objects related to recent peaceful protests or campaigns that you have been involved in. We are interested in all areas of protest, whether it be on the subject of war, the environment, human rights or politics. The only condition is that it has to be non-violent and recent, so from the year 2000 onward.
If you think you might have something of interest to the Museum that you would like to donate or loan then please contact our Collection and Outreach Officer: charlotte.hall
