The Peace Museum Creative Challenge Introduction

June 1, 20209:06 amSeptember 28, 2023 9:09 am

Thanks to RESPONSE funding from Bradford Council, we’re thrilled to be working with a local artist to launch The Peace Museum Creative Challenge – a series of weekly art challenges based around our collection, starting on Monday 1st June.

After a public call out, the museum have commissioned Bradford-born artist Nancy Haslam Chance to create a series of 8 weekly challenges as illustrated resources, inspired by some of the themes our collection of over 8,000 peace and protest objects.

We’ll be releasing a new challenge weekly and are urging people to share their artwork with the hashtag #PMCreativeChallenge, starting on Monday 1st June

Not just for kids, the challenges contain things for people of all ages to engage with and could be enjoyed by adults as a mindfulness exercise, during these testing times

Easy to complete at home, the weekly challenges contain things to do with stuff people may have lying around the house and don’t require people to have expensive art supplies.

Some of the artwork you share online with hashtag #PMCreativeChallenge will be featured in an upcoming online exhibition about the peace movement’s response to Covid-19.
