Peace Doves by Peter Walker

Various dates

Gaze up at 15,000 paper peace doves in the Nave of Durham Cathedral this summer.

Feel a sense of serenity and peace as you experience the Peace Doves installation by artist Peter Walker.

This artwork will be made up of fifteen thousand individually handmade paper doves which will be suspended above the Cathedral’s historic Nave. Listen out for the soundscape by composer David Harper, emphasising the atmospheric experience.

Each dove will contain a message of peace, love and hope, written by members of the public. Look out for special evening viewings and events this summer.

We need your help to create the installation! From Monday 1 April to Saturday 20 July, write your own message of peace, hope and love to be hung on the giant art installation. Find out more here.
