talking peace fest 2 1

A one-day festival taking place on 21 September 2019 to celebrate the International Day of Peace. This global arts and cultural platform will engage in the most urgent issues of peace and conflict around the world.

Five of the world’s leading peace organisations, Conciliation Resources, International Alert, Mercy Corps, Peace Direct and Saferworld invite you to a vibrant and exciting day of film, food, art, music, photography and talks showcasing the impact of peacebuilding.

Festival highlights include a live performance from the Congolese band, Zong Zing; a Filipino feast; Spoken Word; a talk about peacebuilding by Yemeni activists; inspiring art and dance workshops; and an interactive Virtual Reality experience which has been used to help Syrian refugees connect with their homelands.

The fifth annual Talking Peace Festival is extra special, as in 2019 we are the UK’s flagship event for the first ever global Peacebuilding Action Week. Join us for a day full of fun, discussion and music!

All events are free. Many events are open to anyone. Some do require RSVP.
