Fly Me Up To Where You Are A 2020-2021 Community Project

Darwin Festival invites Territory schools to be part of an exciting creative project in 2020.

Fly Me Up To Where You Are is a hands-on conceptual art project from New Zealand artist Tiffany Singh that seeks to inspire and empower young people. Primary, middle and high school aged children from all over Darwin are invited to create one of 5,000 unique dream flags. Inspired by Tibetan prayer flags, each dream flag contains an image or message expressing the students’ thoughts, hopes and dreams for the future. These flags will be created in schools during the 2020 Festival and will then be hung together and displayed in a stunning large-scale community art installation as part of the 2021 Darwin Festival.

Fly Me Up To Where You Are is a celebration of young people in the Northern Territory. It offers a chance to really value our younger generations and teach them to identify their hopes and dreams. Giving students the encouragement to fulfill their wildest imaginations is critical for us to grow and develop as a nation.

If your school would like to be involved please contact Kat Anastasiou-Bell
