Yr12 artists exploring how power was communicated throughout Western art history. Who was generally seen as powerful? What did they look like? How this was communicated? And can those same methods be used to reimagine and retake such histories.
The Britishness project came about in response to the Governments promotion of British values as being integral to the teaching standards and the drive to embed them in curriculum. This project confronts the need to consider what ‘Britishness’ means and how that relates to us as a school. The project is a collaboration between yr 8 artists where they work together to recreate the elements of the Union Jack.
The blue sections are comprised of dyed fabrics that the students bring from home and therefore imbued with family and cultural associations. The white section is made up of letters written to a refugee and the red section is made up of cultural patterns representative of the artists in the class room. The flag is then used as a back drop to develop more performative elements. The balls of paper are the remnants of a performance create by each class, where strands of newspapers are tied together in one long thread, linking all the artists together, before being coiled up into class balls and exhibited around the flag. This element represents community and how each individual contributes to society through working together. As the strands of paper easily break apart, it also becomes a metaphor for constant work needed to support communities, with the strands needing constant care being tied and re-tied. The project concludes with individual or group performances that take place in front of the flag. The performances are based around spoken work poetry that consider what Britishness means to the young artists.

From the fundamental right of every child and young person to explore their creativity, Clare looks at the knowledge, new challenges and gaps in the ‘art adventure’, as well as the vital contributions art, craft and design as well as cultural capital make to our lives, industry and economy.
