About us

week for peace was a vibrant week of activities to bring people together across Nottingham.

We wanted to raise the profile of actions that can lead to peace and reconciliation at a time when so much emphasis is placed on the militaristic solutions to conflict, with the commemoration the outbreak of WW1 a century ago, and Nottingham recently hosting the national Armed Forces Day event.

From September 21st to 28th, 2014 there was an ambitious programme of over 30 events.

We are proud of our partner organisations, including individual artists and many faith organisations, who held events in and around the city.

September 21st is UN International Day of Peace, so it seemed a most appropriate date for the start of the week.
