Peace Poem by Emergency Exit Arts

A photo of the Peace Poem. It is night time with a blue sky with trees and buildings in the background. Standing at 14ft high, the Peace Poem is written in capital letters and is illuminated.


Emergency Exit Arts, one of Britain’s pioneering outdoor arts companies, have made the beautiful words of poet, Robert Montgomery into a touring light installation. This poem was created to commemorate the 100 years since the first day of peace after WWI.

Presented by Crawley’s Creative Playground, Emergency Exit Arts’ Peace Poem will be touring around different roads in Crawley.


When will it be touring?

Saturday 18th November, 6-7.30pm


How can I see it?
