Mosaic Mural Project - Iowa Diversity Conference

CONCREATORS... defining freedom's voice

Iowa Mosaic Mural Project
10-17-05, Scheman Building Ames, Iowa

Conference registration information

The Iowa Diversity Conference contracted partners Unlimited to conduct 23 eight hour projects across the state of Iowa. Each site volunteered their services to select a core group of mostly at risk youth and diverse members of the community to share their stories. Under the guidance of partners artists, they created imagery to represent their community -- focusing on the personal stories that make each community unique. Our goal was to strengthen communities through the arts and helping those who may feel marginalized to feel more connected. Each community is invited to share the unveiling of the mural and their stories during a workshop at the conference on Monday, October 17th. Not only has this established great venues for local and statewide conversations, it also opens the door for on-going programs throughout the State of Iowa in transforming lives through the creative arts!

Celebration of the "Living Bridge"

CONCREATORS... defining freedom's voice

Celebration of the "living bridge", Bridges Alternative School

The Grand Opening of Bridges Alternative school will celebrate with the unveiling of the "living bridge", created by the "CONCREATORS", Bridges students under the direction of partners Unlimited artist, Chaden Halfhill created this bridge as a functional link of past to future, symbolizing the path to change in defining freedom's voice . . . through the choices we make in life. The bridge is a "process" of growth. An invitation to others to contribute their dreams as they burn their messages onto the planks . . . thus feeding the "living bridge".
