Earth and Water, “our planet, our life” Project
Earth and Water,” our planet, our life” project, based on the theme “Our Environment” has been to emphasize our individual and community responsibility for consciously doing our part in protecting our sensitive environment. Art takes an important role in achieving this goal.
To this effect, we have been seeking participation from artists, writers, poets, photographers, and other individuals who would be willing to artistically express their concerns and ideas for a better future.
Since education begin at an early age and experiences are accumulated through time, this project has been conceptualized to involve participants of all ages, from elementary school youngsters with their rich imaginations to senior citizens with their wisdom and life long experiences. Large sources of participants such as schools will be approached seeking their involvement and participation.
In regard to the artwork, each participant will be provided with a cube, made from non toxic floating material so they can express their concerns and ideas for a better future and create his/her artistic statement. The floating cubes will then be exhibited on lakes, pools or other confine water bodies for the enjoyment and reflection of all member of the community.
The idea is to use art as the communicating tool to express and spread a message related to environment and nature issues, such as; water conservation, wildlife, global climate, endangered species, pollution, recycling and more.
A Special opening ceremony will be held, which includes the release of the cubes by the Artists in tone with special music called “ Earth & Water” that has been composed for this purpose.
