Millennium Gallery exhibition sparks Brexit debate

A researcher in the history department from the University of Sheffield has spoken about Brexit and emotion at the Millennium Gallery’s newest installment, Protest Lab.

Liz Goodwin’s talk looked at the narrative surrounding the Leave and Remain campaigns. It also explored how emotional rhetoric was brought in to an appeal to leave the European Union and was followed by a discussion amongst attendees.

The two-year project is an interactive and experimental social space at the city centre gallery that aims to allow people to challenge and talk about current issues surrounding activism.


Curated by Louisa Briggs, Protest Lab is helping to shape Millennium’s upcoming Sheffield: Protest and Activism programme, supported by the Esmée Fairbairn Collection Fund.

Researcher Sarah Kenny will be giving a talk on Community Activism and Youth Culture on Tuesday from 1-1.45 pm.

The series of exhibitions will mark the 100th anniversary of the Representation of the People Act 1918, and ends on 21 May.
