Liverpool Cathedral is inviting primary schools around the Liverpool area to take part in a new, exciting art project in collaboration with artist Peter Walker. Peace Doves is a mass-participation installation project inviting messages of hope, peace and love from across our area, culminating in the creation of an art installation that will hang temporarily inside Liverpool Cathedral from VE Day, Friday 8 May until 31 May 2020. In the lead up to the installation, from 14 February until 19 April, anyone visiting the Cathedral can write a message of peace, hope or love on a paper dove which will join thousands of others to form part of the Peace Doves installation in the Cathedral. How schools can get involved Primary schools across the area will be sent a pack of 40 paper doves to create a display of Peace Doves in their setting. Students can use their creativity and decorate their Peace Doves any way they’d like with a message or drawing about peace, hope and love. Schools are encouraged to get their display of Peace Doves ready for Friday 8 May, then photograph and share it on social media, using #LiverpoolDoves to join the celebration. Schools wishing to be represented in our large-scale Peace Dove installation, need to return ONE paper dove to us by Friday 17 April. This dove must be decorated following the artist’s instructions below:
  • Write or draw a message using black ink – biro works best;
  • Only write or draw on one side of the paper dove;
  • Only write on the head, body and tail, leaving the wings blank.
Please send completed doves flat, in a certificate envelope with the school’s letterhead or compliment slip, to: Peace Doves C/O Emma Williams Liverpool Cathedral St James Mount Liverpool L1 7AZ We can’t wait to see what schools will produce. Anyone who wants to be part of our installation in the Cathedral, please come and see us. We'd love as many people as possible to take part. You can read more about the installation on our website: http://www.liverpoolcathedral.org.uk If you’d like more information about how Liverpool Cathedral can help with schools’ religious education curriculum or arranging a school visit, please contact our Education Team.
