Join our first-ever digital showcase of art, film, poetry and more, featuring UK women’s experiences of peace and conflict.

About this event

“I have to wonder why so much courage is expected of girls and women in this world. So much daily bravery in the world, and yet… how would we know? It goes unsaid. Imagine the volume, were we to hear the sound of all those voices at once.” ― Una

Peace Project and IWPG are proud to present: Women, Peace and Conflict Showcase

When you hear the word “war”, what comes to mind? Afghanistan, Syria, Myanmar, Somalia? What about the UK?

What about when you hear the word “peace”?

Peace Project and IWPG are proud to open our first-ever showcase for women to challenging these perceptions of what war – and, more importantly peace – really mean.

Join us for an amazing lineup of art, video, and writing that explore UK women’s experiences of conflict and hope for peace through the female lens, covering experiences such as displacement, war, domestic violence, mental health, homelessness, trafficking, and more.

This session will include:

  • Fine art
  • Photography & videography
  • Poetry/spoken word
  • Graphic design
  • Illustration
  • Mini-documentaries
  • And more!
