Storiel is appealing to members of the public to donate or lend objects which they may have at home that are linked to the theme of protest.

There is a gap in Storiel’s collection relating to this theme, and the museum is eager to be able to tell the story of protest through objects.

Storiel is looking for objects created or used by people protesting for causes to get their voices heard during the 20th century up to the present – relating to the Gwynedd area. For example items could be related to the suffragette movement, strikes, Welsh language and climate change protests.

Objects can range from traditional protest items such as banners, posters and badges to everyday objects that tell a personal story of protest.

The intention is to create a display on the theme of protest in the community case at Storiel which will be on show from 30 March to 26 September 2020.

Objects that are donated will become part of Storiel’s collection and will contribute to portray a fuller account of the history and culture of Gwynedd, whilst objects that are on loan will be returned at the end of the exhibition.

If you are interested in donating or loaning an item linked with the theme of protest to Storiel, please contact Helen Gwerfyl, Bangor University and Storiel Museum Collections Officer by emailing helengwerfyl@gwynedd.llyw.cymru or by phoning 01286 679823 by 6 March 2020.

A drop in day has also been organised on 27 February 2020 between 11am – 3pm at Storiel, Bangor where members of the public can bring in objects relating to protest.
