Paper Peace (Emergency Exit Arts) back to all events

Shedding light on the fragile nature of peace and the strength of those who sustain it.

As we commemorate the 1918 Armistice and global and local calls for peace continue to shake our social and political landscape, we present Paper Peace, a year long national arts and heritage programme. Created by renowned outdoor arts company Emergency Exit Arts, in association with B ArtsCity ArtsCreative Scene and Vivacity. Paper Peace will shed light on the legacy of treaties, the fragile nature of peace and the strength of the communities and individuals who work to sustain it.

The Peace Poem Tour

On Monday 12 November 2018 our 14ft high illuminated Peace Poem will set off on a national tour to commemorate 100 years since the first day of peace after WWI. The large scale mobile artwork, created with leading artist and poet Robert Montgomery, will be seen by thousands of people as it travels along motorways to cities across the UK. In each destination we are gathering stories, pledges and poems of peace for our National Peace Archive. Come and visit the Peace Poem when it arrives in your city, get creative with local artists and explore how we can all be active peace builders in our communities.
