Its genesis grew out of a sense of helplessness in the face of the annexation of Crimea in 2014 and the work of ‘Peacemakers’ has continued ever since. Bringing together elements of contemporary art practice, craftivism and Christian spiritual accompaniment, ‘Peacemakers’ focusses on peacemaking at a personal and relational level, as a response to the conflict we encounter within our lives and the wider world.  It has been hosted by many communities throughout the UK and has taken on a new urgency in response to these troubled times.

The installation offers a quiet, hospitable space, where visitors are invited to join the artists in the repetitive, contemplative, simple action of knitting on the loom and making peace through the sharing of many small actions and kind words. 

‘Peacemakers’ will be sited in the University of Glasgow Memorial Chapel.
