Peace Helmet Project

Converting Ex-issue Police Riot Helmets into Works of Art

Auctioned Off for Humanitarian Causes

Artists - Waving a White Flag

When the fully formulated idea of Peace Helmets was brought to the table, we could think of no better participants than an international line-up of proactive street art graffiti artists and writers. The artists represent boots on the ground, creatives in the line of fire. Our mission is to produce highly desirable limited edition collectors items worthy of any celebrated art collection. Harnessing the natural raw talent of career artists painting in the streets of most cities in the world, we intend to produce collectible art from a variety of countries. The first series Waving a White Flag features ex-issue British police riot helmets, future campaigns focus on other territories. Each series presents 100 Peace Helmets converted from riot helmets deployed in different countries.

Only invited artists can join the program. Contact via email to be considered for a Peace Helmet.
