Courage, Conscience and Creativity

Courage, Conscience and Creativity


Our new community display opens in the Leeds Story Gallery as part of Leeds City Museum's First World War commemorations. Co-curated by the Concord Interfaith Network in Leeds, Leeds Quakers and Bradford Peace Museum, the display focuses on the themes of peace, interfaith work and conscientious objectors. There are two main strands to the display, first is a year and a half long community project led by Concord Interfaith Network called 'Women Peacing Together'. It involved a group of women from different faiths meeting at different places of worship, community centres and the museum to work together on creating a textile banner themed around peace and interfaith connections. The finished textile banner will be showcased alongside other items and this display also marks Concord's 40th anniversary since starting up back in 1976. The second involves the Leeds Quakers and the Bradford Peace Museum curating stories and material that will look at conscientious objectors in the First World War and their legacy today. Some highlights will include the Friends Ambulance Unit and Richmond Castle cell graffiti. "We are encouraged to question how we live our lives" - Robert (Quaker Meeting House Caretaker)
