‘I look forward to the day when projects like this are happening all over Belfast’. Tommy Holland, community worker,West Belfast
In April 2010 the Belfast Flags of Hope, as a Record setting project, was conceived and commenced. The goal was to create at least 10,000 individual and beautiful art works to form a mass colourful portrayal of hopeful aspirations for a brighter future. Exhibited together on a line like small bunting flags, the plan was to display the artwork along theWest Belfast‘peaceline’. The site of the imposing concrete wall that is the ‘peaceline’ as our outdoor gallery, symbolised the divisions that the project hopes to help to heal. The project required thousands of people to voluntarily contribute their creative energy. Without this mass input from all ages, genders and communities the project could not happen.
