All you need is a few hours or days from 7 August until 28 August 2021 as part of Just Festival – Edinburgh’s social justice and human rights festival, which has been an important part of the Edinburgh International Fringe Festival for over twenty years. Please email us to sign up and we will be in touch with further details during July 2021.

We are aiming to extend the Peace Cranes exhibition until November 2021 leading up to the UN COP26 Climate Change Conference to be held in Glasgow. Please, consider donating here.
