Details

Leeds’s rich history of protest movements have fought everything from war to government cuts. Uncover campaigners’ stories through poignant objects: a mother’s diary charts fears for her protestor son, while a padlock symbolises a campaigner’s fight. 

The display features contributions from local groups like the Leeds Quakers and Leeds LGBT*Q community, as well as new films exploring the police perspective on protest and life before the NHS. 

Co-curated with students from University of Huddersfield's 'History In Practice' degree module.
