Okay, it's not the most exciting image, but these little strips of paper display key activities on how an exhibition is developed from the very beginning to the very end! Activities range from researching objects to constructing plinths for the objects to be displayed on.  

The Preservative Party (which I've been a member since 2010) have already put together a special exhibition in the past at Leeds City Museum, called 'Treasured! Smuggled? Stolen? Saved?', which was open to the public from July 2012 to January 2013. Building an exhibition from scratch offered plenty of valuable and fun experiences that our group are itching to do another!

The exhibition we are currently developing focuses on remembering the people who risked their lives in World War One, as well as preserving the memories of the events and people in Leeds. You can see a part of our research as a Facebook timeline, WW1 Leeds, which marks the main events of the Great War and what occurred in Leeds at that moment in time. If you know of a WWI Leeds story, it would be wonderful to hear from you and add your story to the timeline.

We are also planning on recruiting more volunteers to our team, so if you are interested in getting involved in the Preservative Party*, please contact Steph through: or tweet your interest to @PresParty

*The Preservative Party happily recruits members aged between 13-24 years of age from Leeds and surrounding areas.
