The Peace Museum’s exhibition Visible Voices: The Art of Women’s Protest at the Pop Up art space in Bradford in January 2011 was a great success and drew more than 500 visitors in its three-week run. 

The exhibition brought together over 30 iconic banners and other art of protest created by women over the past 100 years. Women’s protest art has uniquely encouraged, rallied and dared us to both imagine and work towards building a more peaceful world. The exhibition provided a rare opportunity to see the museum’s substantial collection of peace banners on public display.

The exhibition was curated by Julie Obermeyer of The Peace Museum and was a collaborative effort between the museum and Bradford-based arts development organisation, Fabric.
