Peace Cranes: An Installation
Exploring the twin threats of nuclear weapons and the ecological emergency
6 – 28 August, Mon – Sat 10:30am – 5pm. (Sundays 11:45am – 5pm)
St John’s Church, Princes St, Edinburgh
Our Peace Cranes exhibition is a monumental installation by Scottish artist Janis Hart which will transform the entire heritage space of St John’s Church, Edinburgh into a bird sanctuary to peace and hope. The exhibition will be free and open to all as part of Just Festival 6 – 28 August 2021. It will feature 140,000 origami paper cranes folded by people from across the UK, France, Canada, New Zealand and Japan over the last five years.
We hope to extend the exhibition until 30 November 2021 alongside our campaign about the twin threats of nuclear war and climate change in conjunction with the UN Climate Summit COP26 and the UN International Year of Peace and Trust.
Organised by Peace & Justice with Just Festival and with support from Creative Scotland, Pumphouse Trust and William Syson Foundation.
