The Interdependence Hexagon Project asks people to create art within the infinitely inter-linking shape of a HEXAGON, a metaphor for our interconnectedness. The mission of interdependence is to create a more civil, peace-minded and just world through art. Each year, Hexagon Project plans something special for participants at Arts Fest and it’s always exciting to see how people of all ages respond to this community art challenge. Check out what Beth Berkhauser and her team have in store for us this year!
Tell us a little about The Interdependence Hexagon Project.
The Interdependence Hexagon Project, designed to connect communities and celebrate our commonalities, will have several hands-on activist activities around our the theme: “The “ 5 C’s” of Community: Celebrations, Culture, Creativity, Collaborations, and Conservation.
What type of activities do you have planned for Arts Fest?
We will have an LRCA Rain Barrel Mural to paint designed by Melissa Cruise; sand-cast plaster hexagons using recycled and natural materials facilitated by Becca Jett; hexagons to design and enter into our 2018 Exhibition, a variety of art materials; and our “Diversity Tower” to build for 2018.
Who can participate?
All free and open to both children and adults. Anyone who participates in the exhibit by leaving their hexagon with us and registering will be eligible to win a recognition award or certificate and be honored at our Hexagon Project events at the Marketplace at Steamtown on September 7 and 16th.
