The Collateral Damage offers a particular opportunity for creativity and reflection in the context of the centenary of the end of World War One. Making unique white poppies to honour victims of wars in the last century is an opportunity for mourning, healing, prayer and/or reflective conversations.
Everyone is invited to make their own textile poppies, whether simple or highly decorated, and send them to join a large installation at Friends House in Central London from 1 November. You can add an option of a label to say who your poppy is for – perhaps a named person, perhaps an anonymous victim, whether dead or surviving but damaged through trauma, injury, loss of home or loved ones etc.
We hope that the project will enable and encourage us to build more peaceful relations among the peoples and nations for the coming century.
Please send poppies for the installation, to arrive by 15th October 2018, to: Collateral Damage White Poppies, ℅ QPSW, Friends House, 173-177, Euston Road, London NW1 2BJ
