A 5-day festival for peace featuring world premiere performances of A Passion for Peace — a new choral drama in the style of an oratorio by Glenda Cloughley
28th April- 2nd May
Our major project for 2015 is bringing a radically fresh, life-enhancing perspective to First World War commemorations. At the end of April, A Chorus of Women is presenting a 5-day Festival for Peace featuring music, public forums, conversations, a 1-day workshop hosted by the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom on the theme ‘Women’s Power to Stop War, storytelling for children, schools events, displays and more.
The festival is inspired by over 1200 women from 12 warring and neutral nations who established a framework for permanent peace and great advances in international law and institutions when they met in The Hague for the International Congress of Women, which was the only international peace conference of the First World War.
