Lauren worked in local museums for several years, including The Peace Museum in Bradford from 2013 to 2014. After leaving the museum, she continued to support it before joining its Board of Trustees in 2016.
Lauren’s talk will explain the origins, present activities and future plans of The Peace Museum. She will explain how the idea of having a Bradford-based peace museum originated and developed, discuss what it currently does in terms of its collection, exhibitions programme, peace education workshops and community work, and share details of ambitious, exciting and imperative plans of expansion and development in 2018 and beyond.
