Strike Stories (2023)

Amplify the voices of the UK strikers suffering
the unjust practices within the workforce

“The March” is a multi-sensory exhibition on strikes in the UK, exploring the fascinating history and impact of strikes through a variety of means.

Through a series of interactive exhibits, you will be able to hear the voices of striking workers as they share their stories and experiences and see the impact that strikes have had on society, politics, and the economy. You will be asked to place yourself in the middle of these situations, reflect on your impact on industrial action, and feel the physical and emotional toll that strikes take on.

By experiencing strikes in this multi-sensory way, we hope to offer a new perspective on this important part of UK history and encourage visitors to think critically about the role of strikes in shaping the world we live in today.
