Confronted by war and suffering, what would you do?  For Quakers faced by the outbreak of the First World War, answering this question was complicated by the faith group’s historic commitment to peace and peacemaking. 

Using original photographs, film, interviews and artefacts, 'Faith & Action' tells the compelling stories of Quaker men and women during the 1914-1918 conflict and its aftermath. The exhibition examines the impact of the war on Quaker artists, businesses, families and communities in Birmingham, central England and beyond. 

With rare archival material, 'Faith & Action' explores aspects of Quaker humanitarian, medical and relief work in Britain and Europe, and brings to life the dilemmas experienced by young Quaker men in deciding whether to fight, face imprisonment or serve in other ways.

A project of Central England Area Meeting, Religious Society of Friends, in partnership with Birmingham Museums Trust.

Free. In the Community Gallery.
