The Regional Heritage Centre is based at Lancaster University and engages the community in the history of the local area. They run a programme of events, one of which focused on Political Radicalism and Dissent in the Early 20th Century which we were delighted to contribute.
It was great to learn from the other speakers about radical ex-servicemen, local suffragists, and dissent associated with World War I. We also learned a great deal from attendees, many of whom had been active in politics or protest over the years. To capture some of the audience's ideas about the project, we invited them to record the names of prominent women or places associated with protest in the North.
We weren't disappointed! The images below show some of the responses we collected and we very much enjoyed going through them and following up some of the great ideas attendees shared with us.
