Art for Peace

The Dreams of Stockwell project brought together local residents to design and create a mural representing their 'dreams of Stockwell'. The project was developed by international peacebuilding organisation International Alert and community development organization Stockwell Partnership, and implemented in collaboration with community arts organisation Art4Space.
International Alert is one of the world’s leading peacebuilding organisations, with nearly 30 years of experience laying the foundations for peace. They work with local people in over 25 countries around the world to help them build peace. They believe peace is possible when people can live in safety, have fair and effective laws, participate in shaping political decisions, make a decent living and secure their wellbeing.
Art4Space is leading Community Arts Organisation established in 1999 to address social, education and health issues using the arts to inspire and strengthen communities. Their philosophy reinforces the Every Child Matters Agenda by providing projects to children and young people that support the 5 outcomes: be healthy, stay safe, enjoy and achieve, make a positive contribution and achieve economic well being.
Nice project - use art to build a peaceful community.
