Last weekend I had the pleasure of facilitating a commUNITY event at Firefly Hollow Wellness Center. We created banner for Project B1 to show our commUNITY and send a message of peace, love, and celebration to all.
I drew the flower of life on a 3 ft x 6 ft banner, and each person who attended decorated spheres in the flower of life until it was complete.
This visually shows how we are all interconnected! The message was surrounded in love and light through mindfulness and uplifting discussion with one another. We built relationships, and connected on many levels.
[:project b1] is a living breathing art event designed to foster positive changes in the U.S.
The media all around us says we are divided. Not just as a Nation, but also as a Family, as a humanity, as a society. Lets show them we are interconnected.
The concept is simple. We need to start the healing process. We need to come together with complete tolerance and love for one another. We need to lift each other up, so that we can all live in peace, celebrating each others differences. Messages of love and unity will literally surround those who need it.
The physical part of this project is as follows: approximately 250, 3’x6’ (fitted twin) sheets will be marked with positive messages (both writing and drawing). These panels will be connected and banners will be held by volunteers and surround the White House (Pennsylvania Ave, 17th St. NW, Constitution Ave, 15th St. NW) on February 1, 2017 from 12pm to 3pm.
[:project b1] is a collaboration with artists, writers, musicians etc..
The “b1” in the project title stands for “Be One” with each other.
The multi colored sheets signify the diversity among the art community.
Tying the sheets/banners together symbolizes our unity.
“Surrounding” the White House will symbolize our unity.
February 1 is National Freedom Day.
This project could expand to other cities and other countries.
