Quaker Service

Research output: Non-textual formExhibition


Produced for the Quaker Service Memorial Trust, this exhibition details the work of Quaker organisations during and after the Second World War. ‘Quaker Service’ presents the work of the Friends Ambulance Unit and Friends Relief Service which offered forms of humanitarian service to individuals who were not prepared to bear arms, while respecting those fighting in the armed forces. The exhibition features audio visual material and interviews with former members of the FAU and the FRS (in the form of 15 podcast films made by Dr Jenny Carson), in addition to archive footage, photographs and memorabilia, posters and text, all of which give background to Quaker beliefs and their continuing work for peace. The exhibition was created to support the inauguration of a Quaker Service Memorial which will open next year in the grounds of the National Memorial Arboretum (http://www.thenma.org.uk/).
