A picture can tell a thousand words, but we’ll settle for just one: peace.
Strike a pose for peace and tell the world what the word means to you at a pop-up photo booth at Old Street station from 8–14 September 2014. And whilst you’re there, watch talented street artists do live paintings as part of the #art4peace campaign.
Props will be on hand to encourage the public to strike a pose for peace at the booth. We will be tweeting the pictures and want more Londoners to join the conversation using #talkingpeace
And while posing for peace, you’ll be able to check out some talented street artists at work. Pure Evil and Dan Kitchener are kick-starting our #art4peace campaign with some live canvas paintings at the booth on 8 September. The duo will be the first of a number of artists to paint for peace here over the course of the week. Other artists confirmed include:
- 9 September – Tarek Tuma
- 10 September – Lana Alana and Mr Dane
- 11 September – Francesca Love Artist
- 12 September – 616 and Josh Jeavons
- 13 September – Ibrahim Fakhri and Zina
- 14 September – Zina
So pop down to Old Street station this September and tell the world what peace means to you.
