What to expect

#ChoosePeace is an exhibition to commemorate, celebrate and continue peace. Marking 100 years since the end of World War I, the exhibition will take place at The Salvation Army Headquarters in central London.

Creators of Peace has been invited to contribute images about the role of women in giving leadership for peace in our world today. Peace is often thought of as the lack or war or a state of calm and tranquillity. Peace is much more than that. It is a state in which people are living in friendship and without any conflict.

Conflict takes place daily in many different settings – from the kitchen table to the negotiating table – it can be healthy, but it often leads to devastating results. Because of this, peace is something we need to actively seek, build and maintain.
 
As we commemorate 100 years since the end of the First World War, the war to end all wars, this exhibition will reflect on what peace really means and how all have a part in building it.

Photographs, short films and stories will challenge the audience’s concept of peace, celebrate the efforts of peacebuilders around the world and encourage those who view the exhibition to choose peace in their everyday lives.
 
The exhibition intends to inspire and encourage viewers to apply peace in their everyday lives: talk, listen, resolve differences, be non-violent, act sustainably, seek justice, be inclusive and choose peace.

Creators of Peace’s contribution:

Creators of Peace will be showcasing photographs of women peacemakers from around the world who share their stories of what it means for them to be a peace creator in their communities. @creatorsofpeace. The exhibition provides a timely opportunity to learn more about the work of Creators of Peace in empowering women to give leadership for peace.

The exhibition will be open from 12th November to 7th December and you can visit anytime. There is a café at the gallery venue close to St Paul’s Cathedral and the Tate Modern in central London.
