The “Flags Project” Performance as part
of Spirited Brunch 2022

 

Sunday May 15, Charleston, SC.

World-renowned Indonesian artist, Arahmaiani presents her community-based, ecologically-driven street performance, the “Flags Project” in Charleston as part FSA’s Inaugural Residency Program on Sunday, May 15th.  Previously performed in various European and Asian countries, the “Flags Project” inspires collective creativity and facilitates community dialogue. 

The performance will take place in conjunction with Spirited Brunch, an interfaith, self-guided food tour of numerous houses of worship. In collaboration with Charleston Interreligious Council, the event brings together differing venues and sites, drawing a wider audience throughout the downtown neighborhoods to participate in the festivities. Echoing this form of diversity and interfaith dialogue, Arahmaiani collaborates with volunteers to participate in her street performance by carrying flags with meaningful words and symbols that communicate joy and harmony.
