Disrupt? Peterloo and Protest is an exhibition which played a key role in the national commemorations marking 200 years since the 1819 Peterloo Massacre in Manchester. The exhibition tells the story of Peterloo and highlights its relevance today by examining issues within our democracy that people are campaigning for 200 years on.

Using inspiration from Peterloo’s iconic protest flags and banners, a unique way to navigate the space was born, which is also displayed interpretation and interjected pace into the detailed exhibition.

An additional creative space was also designed to sit within the exhibition, Protest Lab; an experimental gallery for individuals, communities and organisations to use to share and develop their views and ideas for collective action.
