Anti-nuclear exhibition comes to Hastings Library

The anti-nuclear exhibition "Everything You Treasure: a World Free from Nuclear Weapons" will open on Tuesday February 18, 5.30pm at the Hastings War Memorial Library.

The exhibition was jointly created by Soka Gakkai International and the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN).

Local organiser Jane Featherstone says the exhibition was created to show how nuclear weapons pose a threat to the things we value and treasure as individuals.

“The exhibition includes 40 illustrated and informative panels which challenge viewers to consider the risks posed by nuclear weapons to the things communities hold dear.”

“The exhibition was officially launched at the 20th IPPNW World Congress in Hiroshima and has been making its way around the globe including displays in Oslo, Norway and the United Nations in Geneva, Switzerland.”

Paula Murdoch, district libraries manager says that with 2014 being the 100th anniversary of the beginning of World War 1, this exhibition is a great lead in to the remembrance events.

“The Hastings War Memorial Library will be acknowledging many important dates over the next four years.”

“While WW1 did not involve nuclear technology, this exhibition is a stark reminder both of the unbelievably rapid rate of technological change and also of the unimaginable consequences of conflict and war. Lest we forget.”

Everyone is welcome to attend the official opening of ‘Everything you Treasure’ at the Hastings War Memorial Library on Tuesday February 18 at 5.50pm.The exhibition is on until Tuesday March 11.
