PORTLAND BLUE BUTTERFLY PROJECT.
On 27 July 2012. 2692 handmade blue butterflies was placed all over the High Angle Battery in Portland as part of 'Doldrum's Lair'.
To celebrate the unique Cretaceous Silver Studded Blue Butterfly which is only found in Portland, local artists and members of the public came together to create a butterfly to represent every young inhabitant of Portland.
This project was part of Battle for the Winds, a part of which was managed by Activate Performing Arts in partnership with Portland Community Partnership and formed part of the opening ceremony for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. The Doldrum's Lair project is kindly funded by the Arts Council. For more information click HERE.
