On September 10 (as part of the What IF Festival of Innovation and Imagination) and 11, 2016 from 10 to 7, we\'re launching UNITY, an interactive public art project. The project is a response to the divisiveness and negative rhetoric in American politics. With this project, we hope to raise consciousness about the labels we give ourselves and others and explore how those labels both support and limit building interconnected, interesting communities.

UNITY is a larger-than-life structure that helps us celebrate our uniqueness and strengthens our ties to each other. The project consists of 32 posts, each with identifiers such as, “I’m a parent; I speak English as a second language; I identify as LGBTQ,” etc. Participants tie colorful yarn to posts that reflect their identities. Their yarn intertwines with others’ to create a web of interconnectedness. In the end, we see that we are all connected by something, and it\'s our diversity that builds a strong and vibrant community.

Special thanks to the What If Festival, Imagination Celebration, the Bee Vradenburg Foundation and the CALM Foundation!
