Projects we’re part of
Paper Peace: BLINK Dewsbury
We’re so excited to have been a part of the Paper Peace project from London based arts company Emergency Exit Arts. Paper Peace is a national programme of activity exploring the UK’s peace heritage. As the lead heritage partner, we have used our collection to inspire different projects as part of Paper Peace such as BLINK, a series of artworks inspired by peacebuilders and activists which will be visiting Dewsbury on 9th November.
BLINK is a free, walk-through experience that invites people of all ages to see peace differently.
Enter the five eyes of BLINK to play with a giant kaleidoscope, work with others to build a giant boat and record your messages of hope for the future.

24 Hours of Peace
Director Neil Bartlett has collected stories of 100 of today’s peacemakers, including interviews from our Learning and Engagement Officer Shannen Johnson and our Curator, Charlotte Hall, for an epic 24 hour performance at Manchester’s Royal Exchange theatre.
A performance like no other, it will start at 11am on Remembrance Sunday, 10 November, with an observation of the traditional 2 minute silence, and then continue – all day, and all night – until 11 am on Monday 11 November.
