About

 

Vivacity is offering 18 – 25 year olds the chance to create an artwork that will tour the UK as part of their involvement in a new project, Paper Peace. Devised and led by outdoor arts specialists Emergency Exit Arts with support from Arts Council England and the Heritage Lottery Fund, Paper Peace which will look at peace activism and what peace means to people today.

Using Peterborough archives as a starting point, participants will create an exciting and engaging large-scale artwork that celebrates peace building between communities.

The creation of the artwork will be decided by participants involved in the project, who will work with an artist of their choosing, to create an installation that will be shown in Peterborough and toured across the cities of other participating partners in: Bradford (The Peace Museum), Dewsbury (Creative Scene), Nottingham (City Arts) and Stoke-on-Trent (B Arts).

The artwork could take any form so whether you are interested in poetry, sculpture, music, dance or a combination of these, this project is for you!

Participants will have the opportunity to work with successful artists, art practitioners and museum experts, as well as learning skills from one another.

There will be an opportunity for participants to take part in a symposium in another city and meet other participants from different cities taking part in the project.

Participants will receive a small fee on completion of the project.

If you're interested in taking part, please contact arts@vivacity.org
