Peace Cranes is our monumental contemporary art exhibition by Scottish artist Janis Hart about peace, people and planet curated by Iliyana Nedkova and Heather Kiernan. It spans the heritage space of St John’s Church, Edinburgh. The exhibition features 140,000 origami paper cranes folded by people from across the UK, France, Canada, New Zealand and Japan over the last six years and an accompanying programme of in-person and online events with artists and activists.
