Description:

Belfast Flags in memory of Thomas Devlin:

Thomas Devlin was young man who was killed in 2005. His family requested the creation of an arts event to give his death a positive legacy for the future. In 2009 The "Belfast Flags of Hope" project was conceived and implemented as one way of helping to dismantle sectarian attitudes; and of trying to create a cultural atmosphere that will help to facilitate a brighter future. There is a tradition of partisan flag flying in Northern Ireland that has always been highly contentious and divisive. The Belfast Flags project seeks to use this divisive format in a new inclusive and positive way.

Please join me (Bebop) on the Playa to take a picture with the Belfast Flags. It is an international project and people are encouraged to take pictures with the Belfast Flags EVERYWHERE in the world...clearly the Playa is a place Belfast Flag Flying needs to happen! Wear your Burner Best and join us for a unifying photo!
