Writing on the Wall are launching a new writing competition for children and young people! 
Join us for our Festival launch as we release doves into the sky as we say yes to peace!

In this centenary year for the 1914 First World War, to commemorate those who died in their struggle for peace, Writing on the Wall is starting a creative campaign based around the slogan ‘Make Doves Not War’.

The project is designed to raise knowledge and understanding of the cause and consequences of the First World War, commemorate those on all sides who died during the conflict, and promote the cause of peace and understanding of other races and cultures, and celebrate diversity among young and old.
