HSBC Brecon Jazz Flag Project

Brecon Jazz FlagIn 2007, Arts Alive Wales worked with local schools and adult groups to create flags and bunting to decorate Brecon for the HSBC Brecon Jazz Festival. Brecon Jazz attracts visitors from far and wide, and groups created individual, bright and vibrant flags and bunting that was displayed in public places around Brecon.

Flags are potent symbols and expressions of identity and make a wonderful project for young people and adults with many opportunities to explore issues of identity, other cultures, creativity and self-expression. In the workshops with local schools and groups, participants designed and painted their own flags and bunting which was displayed during the festival and added to the celebratory atmosphere of the festival and complemented the many acts performing.

In the period running up to the Brecon Jazz Festival, artists and facilitators ran workshops with Brecon Traders, U3A, Llanfaes Primary School, Mount Street Junior and Infants School and Brecon High School.
