Collaborative Mural Facilitation and Creation for Appalshop’s Performing Our Future Institute
I facilitated the design and creation of a collaborative mural with a group that consisted of folks from all over the country for Appalshop’s Performing Our Future Cultural Institute 24 Hour Visual Art Production Period. This mural idea came about because of the varied backgrounds and histories that each participant carried with them. By each person painting their own ‘river,’ they celebrated their individuality. As each river flowed, it ended up in a large body of water created from each person’s river. In this way, our collective humanity was celebrated.
