Peace Camp glows at Valtos

Valtos was the site of one of the UK’s Peace Camps this weekend but unfortunately had to close down early due to adverse weather.

The event attracted over 200 people on Thursday and Friday night.

Peace Camp is created in collaboration with actor Fiona Shaw and musician and composer Mel Mercier. Visitors wander freely through the glowing encampment of hundreds of tents and listen to Mercier’s accompanying soundscape of the great love poetry of these islands.

Peace Camp is inspired by the Olympic Truce, which calls on all nations to lay down their arms for the duration of the Olympics.
