A fascinating music story is now being told at the British Music Experience based at The O2, London. The Museum's 20 Years Of War Child exhibition chronicles the charity's history and how it's partnered with British pop and rock as a platform for social change.
War Child, founded in 1993 as a two-man operation baking bread for children affected by the conflict in the former Yugoslavia, has grown into the only international organisation that concentrates on the innocent victims of war: the children.
The charity has changed and saved the lives of more than 800,000 children by working on projects with artists such as David Bowie, U2 and Radiohead.
Sponsored by O2, the exhibition collates unseen and iconic photographs (pictured), original artwork and video footage, including the making of Help, War Child's 1995 outstanding compilation album featuring Radiohead, Blur and Oasis.
These exhibits provide intriguing insight into some of music's most historic events, while also revealing how War Child has brought hope to children born into the horrors of war.
