Partners

The Peace Museum has worked with, and continues to work with various organisations as part of partnerships and projects. These are vital in promoting the work of The Peace Museum and maintaining relationships with other organisations within the Bradford community and further afield, who are all working toward similar objectives. 

Here are some of the highlights of our partnerships;

Impressions Gallery

The Peace Museum has continued links with the Impressions Gallery in Bradford. In 2017 the museum was involved in a Heritage Lottery Funded Young Roots project. Working with the Impressions Gallery New Focus group which is specifically for young people aged 16-24, The Peace Museum ran a workshop on accessing our collection and the New Focus group produced a First World War resource, ‘No Man’s Land’ which focused on women’s photography during the war and featured items from The Peace Museum’s collection. New Focus then helped co-curate The Peace Museum's exhibition A Flawed Peace? in 2018.

Yorkshire CND

2018 marked the 60th anniversary of the formation of the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament. To commemorate this, the museum opened a temporary exhibition entitled ’60 Years of CND’, which through objects in the collection, created a timeline of CND history. To mark the day the campaign was launched, on February 17th, the museum partnered with Yorkshire CND in a commemoration event, with the museum hosting a ‘Bring Your Own Museum’ activity, where local people could bring along their objects relating to CND history. In early 2020, objects from the museum's collection went on loan to Yorkshire CND to exhibit in Hebden Bridge and Halifax. Our collection covers the history of CND and we continue to collect objects relating to their current activities. 

The Brick Box

The Brick Box is an arts company based in Bradford and we have worked together on various projects since 2016. In October and November 2016, the museum exhibited objects as part of the Wild Woods events which transformed the old Marks and Spencer building in Bradford City Centre into an immersive and exciting indoor art space. They hosted us in a temporary space in 2018 to mark our 20th anniversary, and we often use The Brick Box Bar and arts venue on Ivegate to host events related to our exhibitions and programmes.
