An unbroken circle implies equality and connection with no clear beginning or end. When one part of the circle is affected, the rest is too. In dialogue settings, the circle encourages active participation and exchange.
I participated in an inspiring and unconventional dialogue circle, known as the Chataqua Project, organized by The International Center of Arts for Social Change (ICASC) and Judith Marcuse Projects.
I love mural art! Recently, a mural in Vancouver's Downtown Eastside was revealed and the work of eleven kids from KidSafe - a supportive program for inner-city kids and kids from the Vancouver Aboriginal Friendship Center, was shown off to the public for the very first time.
The kids were guided by Artist Todd Polich graciously collaborated with the kids to paint the amazing and beautiful mural.
You are invited to join us at the With Glowing Hearts Unfestival 2010
What's an Unfestival? Well, we're giving you a chance to see a "work-in-progress" cut of the film, as well as getting involved in some fundraising to help us complete it. We'll have an exciting variety of silent auction items for you to bid on, as well as an opportunity to become a 'producer' on the film and have input into the final version!
I like to invite everyone to join us in creating a big Flash Mob project happening in Downtown Vancouver on 08 August 2010.
The event is call HUG ME @ 2:33
The idea is to have a large group of people hug each other at exactly 2:33pm on 08 August 2010.
You can hug as long as you want and hug anyone. You can bring your teddy bear, family, friends, pets, etc...as long as you hug someone or something. Hug a tree and give your love to the earth!
I will be documenting the whole event with video and photos and posting it up on Facebook, YouTube, My Kindness Blog.
