Hundreds of people, young and old, are expected to head for Dunstable Downs to be part of a collective artwork on Sunday, September 15.
It is all part of a quirky community art project, called We Are Now, which has been running in the town for some time.
Now people are invited to join the organisers on Sunday “to celebrate the town, its beautiful landscape, and the wind that brings it to life”.
The event starts at 2pm at the Chilterns Gateway Centre on the Downs.
Anyone interested in joining in is asked to wear black, silver or white, if possible.
At the event, people can dress up, “share stories about the wind” and contribute additions for a giant, shining kite.
The organisers say: “This will be launched into the sky above the Downs as the event culminates, taking with it the stories, hopes and dreams of the people of Dunstable.”
Anyone who would like to walk up the Downs to follow a “wind stories trail” on Sunday should meet the guide at 1.30pm in the grassy area next to the Whipsnade Road roundabout.
One fascinating aspect of the project is that people have been acting as wind charmers, “collecting” the wind to take along to the Downs.
Portraits of wind charmers have appeared in cafes, shops and windows around Dunstable.
Bedford Creative Arts, the arts charity, commissioned and is producing the project, working with artist Laurence Payot, a creative team and other organisations.
The project is backed by Arts Council England and The Chilterns Conservation Board. To find out more, search for We Are Now Dunstable on Facebook. Or visit www.we-are-now.co.uk.
