The Peace Museum team were supposed to be travelling to Kyoto, Japan in September 2020 to attend the International Network of Museums for Peace conference, thanks to funding awarded by the Daiwa Anglo-Japanese Foundation and Museums Development Yorkshire. Unfortunately, due to the ongoing pandemic, the team were unable to travel, but the conference is now online. This means that people across the world interested in peace can take part.

We submitted two videos about our work at The Peace Museum. Watch them below!

1. Our Curator Charlotte introduces videos created by our team from home during the covid-19 lockdown. The videos are all about our favourite objects from our collection as part of the UK-wide Twitter initiative #MuseumFromHome

2. Our Learning and Engagement Officer, Shannen, and Choices Project Manager, Jude, brought together this video showcasing our unique peace learning programmes.
