I was commissioned by the Trinity Session and VISA to run a series of art workshops in schools and to produce work in response to my experience with the kids. I was asked to explore the theme of the Olympics games with the children, particularly the Beijing theme “One world, one dream”.

Recurring themes that surfaced during the workshops included peace, tolerance, understanding and human rights. The images on these prayer flags, each intended as a blessing, explored the occupation of china in Tibet which came under the spotlight during the lead up to the Olympic games in Beijing.
