The Peace Doves installation from renowned British artist, Peter Walker brought over 150,000 visitors to Liverpool Cathedral over the summer of 2021 and generated media coverage nationally and internationally.  It also presented a much-needed opportunity for many to reflect on peace and its meaning.
