Transform Hate Community Project

Date: 
Friday, January 2, 2015 (All day) to Thursday, February 26, 2015 (All day)

 

Our Partners have been putting together Satellite Exhibitions that will show their own community’s artworks about Transforming Hate.  Now we have received funding which will allow us to rent a bus to take people around on the weekends in Jan & Feb. to several of these “Satellite Exhibits”.

BUT WE WANT YOU TO GET INVOLVED TOO!

YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE – ORGANIZE A WORKSHOP TO MAKE SOMETHING THAT SAYS “THIS IS WHAT I THINK ABOUT INTOLERANCE”!

 
Living Arts invited 12 satellite locations across the area were invited to make their own form of art centered on the topic of Transforming Hate.
