The Peace Museum has received a National Lottery grant of £4,900 for a project, A Flawed Peace?, at the museum in Bradford City Centre.
Awarded through the Heritage Lottery Fund’s First World War then and now programme, and made possible by National Lottery players, the project aims to explore the post-war peace after the First World War.
The grant will fund an exhibition which will feature a 1919 copy of the Treaty of Versailles, the peace treaty signed after the war, that belonged to a Bradford politician.
The exhibition will open at The Peace Museum on Thursday 1st November and run until Friday 28th June 2019, which will mark 100 years since the Treaty of Versailles was signed.
The project will also enable local Bradford children and young people to get involved and learn about this important First World War peace heritage. New Focus, a group of young people from Impressions Gallery, Bradford, will help research the project and assist in creating the exhibition.
There will be fifteen free school workshops offered to local Bradford primary and secondary schools as part of the project, which will engage over 450 pupils with the exhibition and give them an opportunity to learn about the heritage.
A travelling exhibition will also be created which will be used in schools and can be used by community groups as an educational tool during and after the project.
Key local events:
Opening event Thursday 1st November
Special opening Sunday 11th November to mark Remembrance Day.
