Project Canary - The Real Life Repercussions of Politics
Share Your Story:
We invite you, as a person living under our current legislation, to share your personal story of injustice. Stories will be posted anonymously.
You can create small objects inspired by the collected stories. Clay objects have been formed by human hands for millennia as a vehicle to tell stories and serve a function in society.
Place your objects for someone to find:
Stamp the story number into your object and tag with info about Project Canary. Friday October 14th we ask that folks place their objects in public places for people to find, connecting them with another persons story. #projectcanary #projectcanaryfind.
Organize a Work Day:
In order to allow as many people as possible to participate, local artists can organize community work days. Submit your event information for our local listing.
Cups of Conversation- Strangers Sharing Conversation Over Handmade
50 Artists, 50 States, 50 Conversations:
An artist from each state will be going out and having a conversation with someone who knows nothing about ceramics. These conversations will be documented and shared with everyone using #cupsofconversation and #nationalclayweek on Instagram and Facebook.
Share your story:
Explore your community while sharing a conversation and a handmade object with someone new. Take photos or record a video and share the results using #cupsofconversation and #nationalclayweek on Instagram and Facebook.
Watch and Enjoy:
The @nationalclayweek Instagram account will highlight some of these stories and experiences. Watch as people come together and experience the handmade object.
