Birmingham Revolutions – Power to the People

(Saturday) (Friday)

This display will explore Birmingham’s vibrant and varied history of protest and activism, and the role the city has played in some of the most important campaigns and movements in British history.

From the Priestley Riots of 1791 all the way through to the LGBTQ+ campaigns of today, ‘Birmingham Revolutions – Power to the People’ is a chance to discover the different voices and ideas that have contributed to the fight for a better Birmingham.

We will look at campaigns such as voting reform, nuclear disarmament, trade unionism, anti-racism and human rights.

‘Birmingham Revolutions’ aims to show all the different ways in which a person can protest and campaign, what we can learn from past protests, and show everything we as a city have achieved so far.

Art, film, music, literature, clothing and objects will be used in each section of the Gallery for you to discover the long history of gatherings, riots, strikes and campaigns that have occurred in the city.
