Echo Chamber – voices of conscience
Friday 11 November 2016 - Sunday 13 November 2016£1
A sound and photography exhibition marking 100 years of conscientious objection.
Quakers have a long history of opposing war and, when conscription was introduced in Britain during World War I, many chose to conscientiously object to joining the armed forces. For some this meant rejecting any form of participation and they were imprisoned and sentenced to death for their refusal (later commuted). Others took up alternative forms of service, providing relief from suffering at the front. There were over 16,000 registered conscientious objectors during World War I. People objected on different grounds. This exhibition is inspired by their stories.
All profits go to Stroud Refugee Aid.
