We’re really happy to announce the launch of Paper Peace, an 18-month national arts and heritage programme to commemorate 100 years of Peace created by Emergency Exit Arts.

We are very pleased to be a national partner alongside City Arts - NottinghamCreativeScene (Dewsbury) and Vivacity Peterborough Culture and Leisure.

Exciting things are in store over the next 18 months and here's a snapshot of what will be happening:

  • Paper Peace will commence with a 14ft high illuminated Peace Poem setting of on tour. 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.

  • Local archivists and museums will share their collections related to acts of peace

  • Our Young Producers will work with artists and museum experts as part of Paper Peace (more info on how to be a young producer to follow)

  • A finale in 2019 will transform streets and city centres with large-scale professional artworks

If you’re aged between 18-25 and have an interest in the history of peace building in North Staffordshire then we'd love to hear from you, get in touch via our contact page.
