The Peace Building - Our Plans
"The Peace Building will be the first of its kind in London - a museum and education centre dedicated entirely to peace. The space will be a £multi-million, purpose-built, 5,000 sqm capacity venue in a central London location. The Peace Building will aim to inspire and equip people of all ages to take action for peace in all aspects of their lives, collectively creating a culture of peace in London, nationally and globally. It will be a pioneering centre of excellence for peace education in schools and colleges through its exhibitions and learning programmes, both in the centre and through outreach. It will support and resource organisations and initiatives that contribute to peacebuilding and community-building. It will provide a vibrant hub and meeting place where we can learn about and celebrate peacemakers, and remember and honour victims of violence.
We will share stories of peacemaking - past and present. Our thought-provoking permanent and temporary exhibitions will encourage actions towards peace as a way of life. Our community spaces will enable people from all backgrounds to come together for a range of peacebuilding activities. Visitors will be encouraged to develop inner peace and well-being through sessions of meditation, yoga, tai chi, music, and arts and crafts in our community studios. Our public spaces will facilitate discussion and activities that promote cooperation and community cohesion. We will have a cafe and restaurant, a study and reference library, dedicated spaces for children and young people, workshop and meeting rooms and an auditorium which will host talks, lectures, conferences and concerts.
