The Flag Project

Celebrating Nelson’s artistic past, present and future.

Renowned, award-winning Auckland artist Miranda Brown ran workshops in Nelson with local community groups and schools to learn what they love about Nelson. She has taken home over 600 drawings created in the workshops and will use these to inspire the creation of 30 large flags that will adorn Founders Heritage Park during the Festival.

Thank you to everyone who took part in The Flag Project workshops. We are investigating options for how we can display the drawings created once Miranda has finished with them.

Miranda Brown is a multimedia artist and two-time winner of the World of WearableArt, with her work held in collection at Te Papa, and her flags having appeared at WOMAD, Splore and on the Auckland waterfront.
