Greenham: War and Peace
10 four-meter silk banners have been created by Kinetika artistic director Ali Pretty together with the local community (including BBOWT, St Gabriel’s School, former Peace Women, local war historians and numerous individuals) to capture and portray the many stories and events on the Common.
These banners will be part of a large-scale community event to take place September 8th and 9th 2017. However, the banners have had their first outing already during a celebratory walk on the Common on Saturday 1st July. Images from this walk can be found on Mike Johnston’s Flickr page here.
The event celebrates the 20th anniversary of Greenham Common Trust and will focus on 100 years of history of the Common through war and peace.
