Peace and Pandemic online exhibition launched!
Our first online exhibition Peace and Pandemic is has now launched online, exploring the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on communities and campaigning. The exhibition comprises of three different strands: Community Spirit, A Global Effort and Peaceful Protest in Lockdown, which viewers can browse through online.
The online exhibition uses photography and commentary from recent events alongside museum objects to explore the implications of the virus through the lens of peace and community cohesion. Alongside the exhibition is a fun and informative video series made by local artist Marianne Matusz, who tells us more about key themes with creative exercises such as t-shirt making and letter writing.
Peace and Pandemic will be ongoing and responsive and we’re still looking for content like photographs, videos or items from peaceful protests, stories of peaceful campaigning during the pandemic and examples of how communities have come together.
