Ragged University: Visit, Listen, Learn, Write – Disrupt? Peterloo and Protest @ People’s History Museum | England | United Kingdom

Come along to the People’s History Museum (Left Bank, Spinningfields, Manchester, M3 3ER, United Kingdom) at 2pm where we will go around the ‘Disrupt? Peterloo and Protest’ exhibition before having a chat in the cafe about any thoughts which came to mind.

Visit, Listen, Learn, Write – Disrupt? Peterloo and Protest

The event is an informal visit to an exhibition taking people through the history of the Peterloo Massacre which happened in 1819.  The aim is to visit the museum, take in the exhibition and history through listening and conversation, and – for those who want to – they can write an article on what they have learned.

The People’s History Museum celebrates our radical past with the aim to inspire and motivate people to take action and shape a future where ideas of democracy, equality, justice and co-operation are thriving.

This exhibition is part of the national commemorations marking 200 years since the Peterloo Massacre in Manchester in 1819.  The exhibit tells the story of Peterloo and highlights its relevance today, examining issues within our democracy that people are campaigning for 200 years on.

The exhibition features objects, including original Peterloo artefacts, brought together for the very first time, alongside pieces telling more recent stories of various protests.  It includes a specially commissioned short film which brings to life the story of Peterloo, protest, and the road to democratic reform.

Also there is a creative space within the exhibition framed as a Protest Lab; an experimental gallery for individuals, communities and organisations to use to share and develop their views and ideas for collective action.
