PEACEMAKERS: Call 2 Action


SOLA ARTS in partnership with Aspire Trust are undertaking a 4-month research and development for our new collaboration: 'Peacemakers'.


Peacemakers aims to open dialogue between victims of war both military and refugee, using creativity and arts based practice as a platform and sharing space. It also aims to enhance the refugee arts infrastructure in the region by  presenting work by participants who are drawn from the refugee and military communities and who are willing to work with artists to explore, express and present their diverse experiences, shared and common understandings and unique life journeys.



The project coincides with 1st World War Centenary programming in the Liverpool City Region and in this research phase we aim to identify partners, consult potential participants, identify a suitable delivery approach with a view to informing a year long programme of arts activity.



If you are within the refugee community, we would like to hear from you. We would like to consult with you, hear of any experiences that you would like to share and develop a programme of activity with you.



If you are within the military community, we would like to hear from you.  We would like to consult with you, hear of any experiences that you would like to share and develop a programme of activity with you.



If you are within the artistic and creative community, we would like to hear from you. We are looking for community based and socially engaged artists who have the experience, skills and knowledge to work with participants drawn from the refugee and military communities.
