Peace love is a pole of peace, with a pole for everyone.
It’s been around for decades, with the poles of Peace Love, Peace Life, and Peace Love Everywhere all made in the UK.
And that’s what makes it so special.
In the past 20 years, we’ve seen an explosion in the number of pole-shaped buildings in the world, which means we can now count the number on one hand.
The pole-like buildings that line the streets of the UK are called Peace Love.
This year, the Peace Love Festival, an annual event for people and organisations working on peace and environmental issues, is held in London.
It’s an opportunity for the UK’s leading thinkers, activists, academics and activists to come together for a weekend of great discussion, food, and dancing.
We wanted to hear more about the origins of the Peace Pole and what makes the pole so special, so we spoke to the artists who created it.
What inspired the idea for a pole?
“A peace pole was born from the idea that the people and governments around the world are not all equal, that it is important to bring people together, rather than divide them.”
And this pole, as well as the rest of the London event, is a result of the work of the Global Peace Network.
“The Global Peace network was born in the early 1990s from a group of individuals, who wanted to create a pole in order to promote the global concept of peace,” says Simon Kavanagh, Global Peace’s senior director of communications and advocacy.
He says the idea of a pole is a universal one and that the world is not just divided into those with a good relationship with the Earth, and those who are in the worst position to make a difference, like war-torn countries.
Kavanagh explains: “Peace is the idea which says, we should have an equal opportunity to live together and have a positive relationship with each other.”
What are the poles built from?
Poles have been around since at least the 1800s, and they are still in use in many parts of the world.
A number of them were built by Dutch people who wanted peace.
Dutch artist Johan De Koning created the world-famous Peace Love Pole in 1998.
Nowadays, there are around 400 poles in the United Kingdom.
But it wasn’t until 2010 that a new pole was designed in collaboration with the artist Johanna van der Meer.
She used a combination of materials including recycled material from local waste, and used a paintbrush to create the pole.
With the addition of a wooden base, the pole can be made of a variety of materials and sizes, like aluminium, copper, or even a steel pole.
The pole is painted in gold on a metal base and the base is painted with the colours of the city, which helps it to stand out.
Is it cheap?
The Peace Love pole is not cheap.
According to the website for the festival, it costs between £20,000 to £40,000.
That’s less than the price of a luxury car and, while it does cost less than a traditional pole, it will still cost £200 a day to keep the pole running.
Why are the Peace Poles made?
Peace love is often associated with the image of the peace sign and, for those who live in war-ravaged countries, it is a symbol of hope and peace.
“Peace Love is a powerful symbol of unity, and it’s also about hope,” says Van der Meers husband.
People all over the world who live on the peace side of the globe love the peace pole because it gives them hope, she explains.
They believe in the principle of ‘peace before power’.
“The Peace Pole is the symbol of peace and we believe it’s a great idea, so it was really important to have this pole.
It really gives people hope, it’s the most beautiful thing that we could do.”
It was a challenge to create something which looked like a pole.
“We took lots of inspiration from the pole-makers in Amsterdam,” says van der Mermeer.
“We looked for the best possible materials, so the pole itself is made of wood.
It was really hard work.”
The pole itself, is made from aluminium and copper, it was made of the colours which people have a really strong relationship with and they want to paint the pole with that colour.
“It’s not easy to do that, so our team was really working hard, to make sure that it looked beautiful and that we did not over-do it.”
As soon as we had the pole, we started looking at the materials that we needed and we started painting the pole to give it that unique look.”
Is the pole permanent?
Well, yes, the poles can be turned around at will, but only
