Visualising Peace

The stories that we tell and the pictures that we paint of peace influence how we imagine, understand, promote and work towards it. The items in this ‘room’ explore different ways of representing peace in art, dance, music, film and other kinds of storytelling. We want to draw attention to long-standing habits and innovative approaches, because both can get us thinking about peace in unexpected ways. We encourage visitors to look critically at different techniques and to ask themselves how they might represent peace in different media. Above all, we want to raise awareness of the impact that storytelling can have, not only on how we visualise peace but also on how we build it and what kinds of peace we invest in. How have different representations of peace influenced the way you understand it? What narratives or representations of peace have you shared with others? And what habits of visualising peace would you be keen to encourage in future?
