Derby Cathedral is delighted to welcome Peace Doves to the city from 23rd April -12th June 2022.
Peace Doves is a mass participation large-scale art installation, created by renowned sculptor and artist Peter Walker. It features around 8,000 paper doves suspended on ribbon above the nave of the Cathedral, accompanied by a soundscape from composer David Harper.
Schools in Derby and Derbyshire, community groups, wellbeing groups and the general public, have been invited to decorate the doves that form the artwork with messages of peace, love and hope, creating a unique piece that reflects the thoughts and feelings of Derby citizens, from all faiths, ages and backgrounds.
Visitors will be welcomed to appreciate its scale and beauty and experience a sense of serenity and peace.
Entry is free with a suggested entry donation of £3 per person. Booking is encouraged and is available through Derby Cathedral’s Eventbrite page. Donations will go towards the care and work of the city’s Cathedral, helping to keep its doors open for all.
