Remixing the Future, a placemaking project
Participants wrote lines from their original poems on strips of fabric, then tied those strips to the fence at the school where we hosted the workshop, Vero Beach Elementary. They read aloud a remixed version of their combined poems and meaningful song lyrics in front of the project. In this way, the group experienced each others stories through listening, sharing, collaborating and creating. The public visual art project makes visible these stories in a more permanent way, honoring all participants and their voices.
