Paper Peace and the Young Producers Programme
As global and political events continue to shake our communities, we present Paper Peace, a year-long national arts and heritage programme. Created by renowned outdoor arts company Emergency Exit Arts, in association with B Arts, Creative Scene, Ideas Testand Vivacity. Paper Peace will shed light on the legacy of treaties, the fragile nature of peace and the strength of those who work to sustain it.
We will unearth the history of peace activism with a new generation with the Paper Peace Young Producers programme. 48 people across the country aged 18 to 25 will receive training from arts practitioners and museum experts in curatorial and event production, learning to interpret a variety of historical sources from the past century and connecting with peace-building heritage in their local area. The Young Producers will collaborate with professional artists to help realise their ideas and create a series of artworks that will form part of the Paper Peace finale events in autumn 2019.
With thanks to National Lottery Players.
