What is your artwork about? Every heart that breaks we can heal together.
Hope can help heal broken hearts. A human being is not attaining his full heights until he is educated.
Did your group enjoy working on this project? These teachers and children have created very powerful and profound images and statements about what they believe to be important actions to take in making a difference in teh old! It has been a rich experience!
Do you have any other ideas of projects the IFC could do? Virtually wrap the globe!
The International Hexagon Project and Dream Rocket images (maybe others) , cropped into hexagons, could be virtually uploaded to cover the earth. It could expand as the content grows. It could be related to the actual size of the earth (give me some IT help here, however!! – lots of it!) Interdependence is about global collaboration. All art work would be visible. One could click on an image (as is done already in your Google, I believe) and read about the artist locate on map, and the image. So BOTH of our projects can still remain the same – but become collaborative. Perhaps we could collaborate with some other social justice arts projects also! We all have similar goals in mind!
