Event description

Description

Spray Peace is a non-profit organisation that has been founded with the aim of promoting values of tolerance, peace and equality through different forms of art.

As part of the Talking Peace Festival programme, Spray Peace will be organising a stencil making workshop. This workshop provides a new, fun perspective on graffiti allowing everyone to try and make their own stencil street art!

Using this simple and very common technique anyone, from children and youngsters to adults and elderly, can learn a new means of creative expression. Spray Peace believes that such an approach can help erase the negative image of graffiti and street art, and give it a fresh, more positive one - because any form of creative expression can be the start of a meaningful dialogue.

Come join us on Peace Day, try your hand at graffiti and start conversations about peace.

Don't forget to RSVP to ensure you have a spot in one of the two workshops available on the day.





The Talking Peace Festival is a global arts and cultural platform designed to engage people in the most urgent issues of peace and conflict around the world. This one-day festival on 21 September 2019 celebrates the International Day of Peace and uses the power of creativity to showcase the impact of peacebuilding.

The festival returns for its fifth year and takes over Flat Iron Square, a cultural hub in London Bridge. And for the first time it is being organised by five members of the +Peace coalition, who are coming together to tackle global levels of violence and division and transition culture, policy and politics in support of peacebuilding.

Collectively, these organisations work in more than 38 countries around the world with communities, business and government to build peace. Together Conciliation Resources, International Alert, Mercy Corps, Peace Direct and Saferworld are curating an eclectic programme of events including art, food, photography, talks and music to showcase the power of words and highlight some of the inspirational peacebuilding work taking place around the world. Visit the festival website for more details.
