2020 Objects of Peace: WILPF Printing Blocks
The Peace Museum has launched a crowdfunding campaign to help build The Peace Museum of the Future. As part of the campaign 20 ambassadors have chosen an object from our collection to talk about its importance in the history of peace and why it is significant to them.
The New Focus Young People’s Collection at the Impressions Gallery in Bradford have chosen the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom print blocks we have in the collection as we worked with them on a project in 2018.
“@ImpNewFocus here, our favourite object from the Peace Museum is this wood & copper printing block made from a photo of the 1919 @WILPF peace conference in Zurich. We found this as part of our @HeritageFundUK project #NoMansLand & reprinted it pink to celebrate women’s activism!”
