Banners in the Cathedral

Banners in the Cathedral was a unique opportunity for 1,800 children to explore the Olympic and Paralympic Values, and to share their work with thousands of visitors to Exeter Cathedral, coinciding with the passing of the Olympic Torch Relay through Devon on 20 May 2012. A link to a picture of each school's banner can be found in the list at the bottom of this article.


Banners in the Cathedral Exhibition, Exeter CathedralThe project was a partnership between Daisi, Team Devon and Exeter Cathedral, and has also received funding from the Helen Foundation.

Daisi's professional artists worked with children and young people aged between 5 and 18 in 59 schools across Devon and Torbay. The exhibition was so popular amongst the Cathedral's visitors that it was extended for an extra week.

'Many children were excited about seeing their banner up in Exeter Cathedral and it reminded me of how important it is for children to be given a voice for many to hear' - Cara Patterson, Daisi artist

'Thank you for the absolutely amazing, fantastic, fabulous day' - Cyann, age 11

'I learned that you can make art out of junk' - Dan, age 8

'The children were captivated by the topic' - Emily Steer, Class Teacher, Decoy Community Primary School
