I’ll be working with Kinetika as a supporting artist on the Great Yarmouth branch of the Circus 250 project. Circus 250 is a national celebration of circus arts and heritage. The Arts Council England have funded Great Yarmouth & Norwich’s collaborative ‘City of Circus’ project in a partnership between SeaChange Arts, Norwich Arts Centre, Lost in Translation Circus and Norwich City Council.
As part of this project, I’m a flag artist working with Great Yarmouth community groups, including Herring House Trust and GYROS, to design and make silk batik flags inspired by SeaChange Arts contemporary circus arts and their ex-military Drill Hall venue. Plus, as CPD training, I worked with Kinetika for 2 days in their Thurrock studios developing designs.
The community-made flags will be used as part of the Great Yarmouth Arts Festival carnival parade on Saturday 9th June and the Lord Mayors Procession in Norwich on Saturday 7th July.
