About us

The Talking Peace Festival is a global unique arts and cultural platform organised by peacebuilding charity International Alert designed to engage people in the most urgent issues of peace and conflict around the world, celebrating the UN’s International Day of Peace on 21 September. Now in its third year, this year’s Talking Peace Festival will continue to showcase the power of words and creativity in resolving conflict.

In London, the 2016 Talking Peace Festival will be run in partnership with House of Vans.

International Alert is one of the world’s leading peacebuilding organisations, with 30 years of experience laying the foundations for peace. We work with local people in over 25 countries around the world to help them build peace, and we advise governments, organisations and companies on how to support peace.
