Description

Thoughtfully curated by guest Gareth Bryant (PhD student, Open University), the exhibition explores networks of solidarity between groups campaigning on peace, nuclear weapons and national self-determination.

In the late 1950s, hundreds of thousands of people took part in demonstrations against Britain's role in the nuclear arms race, sparking a movement that would continue until the present day. Over the decades, individuals from different classes, genders, races and religions would be united in their support or rejection of nuclear disarmament. At times of great political division, these alliances evolved to incorporate debates over industrial relations, social policy and British identity as a whole.

The exhibition approaches this network primarily from the point of view of peace and anti-nuclear groups such as the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (CND) and the Campaign Against Arms Trade (CAAT). However, it invites you to consider how the interests and goals of any group can interact and intersect with one or more others. Also on display are the opponents of nuclear disarmament, such as Women for Families and Defence, hoping to foster a deeper understanding of the diversity of opinion that continues to characterise British society.
