I am working alongside groups across Leeds to think about, What does Peace mean to us?' and we are creating textile banners in response to this question. This forms part of a larger programme of events called Armistice & After with Leeds Museums and Galleries. The project takes inspiration from an Armistice Flag which was carried in November 1918 in Leeds. The banners along with many other symbols of Peace will be on display from 10th-18th November 2018 in the Brodrick Hall of Leeds City Museum.
