In September this year LJMU Special Collections & Archives will be participating in Heritage Open Days with a focus on this year’s theme ‘People Power’.

Visit us during Heritage Open Days for a private view of the archives, including access to material never before exhibited.

As part of the People Power theme for Heritage Open Days, we will be highlighting the material in our collections that speak of protest, rebellion and revolutionary ideas.  From punk to situationism, cybernetics to 1960s counterculture, we hold many collections that relate to these themes.

You will be able to see a range of material from our archives, including photographs and sketches of Arthur Dooley’s sculptures, punk fanzines and art, 1960s counter cultural magazines such as International Times and Oz, Situationist posters and leaflets, and documents relating to Stafford Beer and the revolutionary Project Cybersyn in Chile.

Archive staff will be on hand to answer questions and provide background and context to the material.

Opening Times:

Friday 13 September: 1-4pm
Saturday 14 September: 1-4pm
Friday 20 September: 1-4pm
Saturday 21 September: 1-4pm
