Working Together

1-30 August 2018

The Modern Records Centre is hosting the exhibition 'Working Together: Capturing the heritage of the workers’ co-operative movement, 1970s-1990s', on loan from the National Co-operative Archive.

Also on display are original documents from the MRC's own archives. These include documents about co-operation in the 19th century, co-operation and the consumer, co-operative politics, and the international co-operative movement.

Images from the exhibition are available through the National Co-operative Archive's Flickr site.

Past events:

Crafting Resistance: The art of Chilean political prisoners

An exhibition co-curated by Jasmine Gideon, Birkbeck, University of London, and Gloria Miqueles, Chilean ex-political prisoner, held at the MRC between 30 October - 17 November 2017.

Community Speaker Series

The Community Speakers Series offered an opportunity for community members, independent scholars, academics, and students to come together to discuss a topic of importance or interest to the local community. Each talk was accompanied by an interactive exhibition of related archival material held at the MRC.

Open Education Series

The Open Education Series was a monthly series of events organized by students at the University of Warwick on topics that have been mostly excluded or challenge the Eurocentric academic curriculum. The series utilised the resources of the MRC, a unique archive housing primary sources on modern British social, political and economic history and allowed for attendees to engage with original source material.

Archives Alive

A project that involved working with local schools to develop pupils' research skills and encourage them to engage with primary sources.
