Speaker:  Steve Gill

Every picture tells a story.  When we look at family photographs do you ever ask yoursel "why did they take it?"; "who took it?"; "what was the occasion?"; "what camera was it taken on?"  Answer thes questions and it will give some possible ideas on what the date was.  But all our photographs are ageing - some more than others. What can be done about it?  This talk aims to get you looking at your old photographs ina different way and seeing what their potential is for the future.

Registration is essential

Disrupt? Peterloo and Protest

Opening in March 2019 the museum’s headline exhibition for 2019, Disrupt? Peterloo and Protestforms a central part of its bicentenary programme. The nature of Peterloo and the political repression that followed means there are few artefacts remaining, which in bringing together for the first time key items from the time makes this exhibition all the more powerful. This includes a Peterloo medal, the only one of its kind uncovered to date, which carries the strong and impassioned words of the time, “These things will not endure or be endured”. A newly commissioned film will feature as part of the exhibition, telling the story of Peterloo and the road to democratic reform.

Alongside the exhibition a gallery will become a Protest Lab, for individuals, communities and organisations to use as an experimental space for creative campaigning and collective action.
