Imperial War Museum Build The Truce

Build The Truce is an Imperial War Museums project.  It looks at the idea of truce, and how modern conflict might be prevented or resolved.  Truce, a time when violence is put on hold and we give peace a trial, allows pause for thought. Truce depends on neutral space and intelligent discussion, in order to develop into a more long-lasting peace . Build The Truce takes this idea as the basis for sharing  the Museum’s spaces, collections and knowledge with our audiences and partners.

Build the Truce takes the stories of people who have  lived through violent conflict, or through its resolution, as a starting point for learning sessions, online activity, visitor events and public displays.  Contact the Project Coordinator (see ‘Team’) for further information.

The Truce blog is a way of sharing resources and perspectives on conflict: how it is represented in the Museum and elsewhere. It’s also a way of signposting other organisations, places or events that link to conflict resolution.

The blog is a pilot project. It depends on your input, support and feedback. The Museum welcomes your comments in response to Team and Guest blogs. These posts will not be neutral; they may be provocative or controversial. However, the blog  is an unbiased and protected space where your right to comment or respond is valued, and your respect for other users is appreciated.
