Fly Me Up To Where You Are

In 2020 Darwin Festival invited school students across the Darwin region to create unique dream flags to express their thoughts, hopes and dreams for the future.

Their designs covered everything from global issues like the COVID-19 pandemic, Black Lives Matter and the environment to family, home or their favourite animals and music. Now you can experience 3,000 of these beautifully decorated flags, along with a special flag that has been designed by Larrakia artist T’ara Cole to reflect on the original people of this land in a large-scale installation at Darwin Waterfront.
