Friday 21st June 2024 to Sunday 27 April 2025
10:00 to 17:00

People across the world have communicated their experiences of violence and conflict, human rights violations, poverty, oppression and environmental issues through the form of textile narrative. 

The result is a visual record and a form of artistic expression based on personal, and often very poignant testimonies. 

This collaborative exhibition will explore the strengths and highlights of the Conflict Textiles collection - its history, international diversity and the important themes it addresses.
