In February Rochester Cathedral will be transformed by Peace Doves, an artwork by Peter Walker Sculptor.

Bringing a message of peace and hope, the Peace Doves artwork has been created from thousands of individually hand made paper doves. Together they collectively form this beautiful artwork which as a whole reflects joining together in unity, peace and hope moving forward.

Peace Doves is an artwork that has been re-curated for different spaces as it tours the UK. Adaptations have been seen in Liverpool, Lichfield, Derby and now at Sheffield and Rochester.

We need your help to create the doves for this artwork. We have doves available at the Cathedral. Please write a message of peace on a paper dove and place the dove in the basket. Your dove will join thousands of other doves to form the final installation.

A special programme of events will run alongside the installation.
