2018 will mark the 100th anniversary of the Representation of the People Act, in which all men and some women won the vote. To mark this monumental anniversary, the People’s History Museum will programme a year long season of exhibitions, events and learning programmes working with marginalised and underrepresented communities on the theme of the struggle for representation.
As part of the community exhibition strand of the programme we are pleased to announce an open call for submissions from groups or individuals wishing to display or produce an exhibition around the theme of representation. The 2018 community exhibition programme will be selected by a panel of museum staff and members of a cross section of community groups.
