The Flags for Hope project forms part of Cheshire Dance’s 2022 Cultural Recovery Programme for Winsford town centre.
Cheshire Dance in conjunction with Cabasa Carnival Arts will run two free visual arts workshops at Winsford Library in early 2022 to bring the community together to share experiences of the pandemic. Named “Flags for Hope”, these workshops will see the tales of Winsfordians transformed into four giant batik flags for the town centre.
The first workshop will take place on Saturday January 22nd with a drop in session between 10am and 4pm. The community is invited to come along and contribute ideas that centre around the town, its people and the local heroes who stepped up to support others during Covid-19. These stories will subsequently be translated onto 4 batiks and displayed in the town centre. The project will culminate in free family festival in March that will provide an adventure through the arts for residents of Winsford of all ages.
Cheshire West and Chester Council is committed to celebrating diversity and promoting equality in everything it does, to improve the quality of life for everyone living, working and visiting Cheshire West and Chester.
