2021: Beach of Dreams UK, Kinetika

I’ve been playing a small role in a big project that will see 500 bespoke naturally-dyed silk flags being walked 200 miles along the east coast of England this summer. The Beach of Dreams project is led by Kinetika, an Essex based arts charity. I’ve had the pleasure of working with Kinetika for the last few years on community flag making projects in Norwich and Great Yarmouth, and this year, the pandemic has meant the project has been led differently, but with no lack of vibrant ambition!

The flags have been designed by artists in each local area, inspired by drawings and writing submitted by community members captured on a walk on a 1 mile stretch of coastline. The coastline has been adopted by groups and individuals, with a commitment to walk with a flag during the project

The walking installation will start on Sunday 27th June from the First Light Longest Days of Summer event in Lowstoft at midday, and eventually end at Tilbury in Essex for a finale weekend on 31st July-1st August
