An internationl shout out for peace. An art exhibition on the theme of peace.
All We are Saying is a programme developed by Sunderland Minster and local acclaimed artist Barrie West, based on the premise of Artists for Peace. The project is a non-partisan, non-religious, non-political creative statement for peace – whether that is cohesion, acceptance and understanding within local communities or peace at a global level.
The project is entirely not for profit and most artists are participating without payment; offering their time and expertise as in kind support to a programme they see as valuable to society and Sunderland. A number of other cities around the UK (including Liverpool and Newcastle), Europe (cities in Germany and Netherlands) and the world (Japan) are also participating – with Sunderland acting as lead hub.
Alongside the development of the artists’ work, Sunderland residents will be able to take part in the project through the ‘postcards for peace’ initiative, and by making a dove or crane for the installation of ‘a thousand . . . ‘ which will be built up over the period of the exhibition. There will also be other participation opportunities throughout the autumn.
