The Antigonight Festival “Art after Dark” took place last Friday and Saturday in Antigonish. We had good weather, especially on Saturday and lots of people came to take in the sights, sounds and smells of this great gathering of artistic projects. There was music, theatre, dance, visual arts and lots of participatory events.
My project was called “Prayer Flags – Good Wishes in Cloth” and I had a great turnout at the Library community room on Friday night. Lots of people came through and helped by making a flag. I had prepared the flags and gathered lots of material to decorate them so everyone found something they wanted to put on. I had to let most of the flags dry overnight as there was quite some paint on them, so I strung them up the next morning. They look so bright and cheerful in the sunlight!
Have a look for yourself:
Alltogether we made 113 flags, the are strung up outside the library and will weather there and send all the good wishes and hopes into the universe. I had a lot of positive comments about the project and all ages, from kids to seniors enjoyed making the flags.
