Back in 2017 we were delighted to announce that some objects from our collection went on loan to the Imperial War Museum in London for their new exhibition, ‘People Power Fighting for Peace’. This included the iconic Greenham Common Peace Camp banner designed by textile artist Thalia Campbell. 

The exhibition explored the influence of peace movements on the perceptions of war and conflict and took visitors on a journey from the First World War to present day.

The exhibition ran from Thursday 23rd of March until 28th August 2017.

In 2015 the museum loaned the ever popular ‘Greenham Common’ Banner by Thalia Campbell to the V&A for its  ‘Disobedient Objects’ exhibition. 

“From a Suffragette tea service to protest robots, this exhibition will be the first to examine the powerful role of objects in movements for social change. It will demonstrate how political activism drives a wealth of design ingenuity and collective creativity that defy standard definitions of art and design. Disobedient Objects focused on the period from the late 1970s to now, a time that has brought new technologies and political challenges. The exhibition toured worldwide including in Australia. 

It launched on 26th of July and ran until the 1st of February 2015.
