Art of Peace

Over 2014-19, through the HLF funded Wales for Peace programme, WCIA has supported a diverse array of creative arts projects engaging communities, schools and youth groups Wales-wide in exploring and responding to themes of Wales’ Peace Heritage. Many of these initiatives were transformational in developing skills, perspectives and confidence of participants, but also – through exhibition displays, public events and online / public profile – created a profound impression on audiences, reaching many tens of thousands of people.

Arts-based approaches are perhaps one of the most powerful tools for getting to issues at the  ‘Heart of Peace’ – and so WCIA hope to continue building on this track record of working with artists and community groups to continue fostering the ‘Art of Peace’.
