'Peace Doves’ is a large-scale art installation created by Sculptor, Peter Walker. The installation will be made from approximately 10,000 hanging paper doves which will be in St Albans Cathedral from 3rd January – 13th February 2024.

Lit and set to music by Composer David Harper, this atmospheric piece of artwork has been designed to involve mass community participation.

School participation 

‘Peace packs’ have been formulated by Peter Walker and can be emailed over to schools so that your pupils can create a display of hope, peace and creativity.   This could tie in with different times of the school calendar including Remembrance Day and Christmas. 

We would then love for schools to send us photographs of the work carried out in your school so these can be displayed alongside the dove installation in January 2024.

Wellbeing days

Whilst St Albans Cathedral is hosting this amazing installation we would like to offer schools the opportunity to come to the Cathedral to participate in our specially formed ‘Peace and wellbeing days on a few selected days in January.

The day will consist of walking our labyrinth with activity stations, considering what is peace and taking part in mindful Yoga sessions underneath the installation.   You can find out  more information here
