In the spring of 2009 Nick Dubois and Drew Matott organised a paper arts tour through England, Scotland and Northern Ireland. The objective of the tour was to broaden the already existing model of using papermaking processes as cathartic artmaking pioneered by the Combat Paper Project to work with ex-combatants, families of those fallen and civilians caught in the cross-fire of conflicts in and around the British Isles.
This venture was funded in part by a grant from the Arts Council of England. People's Republic of Paper, Millenium Court Arts Centre, Phoenix Gallery and Warrington Peace Foundation also supported the tour.
It featured the Combat Paper Project by showcasing a travelling exhibition (Fabric of War) and the leadership of two CPP papermakers, Drew Cameron and Chris Arendt. Workshops, exhibits, papermaking demonstrations and presentations were held at the Courtauld Institute of Art and the Imperial War Museum, both in London, England, the Birnam Institute in Dunkeld, Scotland, the Millenium Court Arts Centre in Portadown, Northern Ireland, the Phoenix Gallery in Brighton, England and the Warrington Peace Foundation in Warrington, England.
