The Global Mosaic Project
much of my public art practice has largely taken on a community-based
approach, I decided to continue this work under the auspices of The
Global Mosaic Project. The Global Mosaic Project partners with other
organizations and businesses for various projects which bring art
education, entrepreneurial training and neighborhood beautification to
communities around the globe.
My aim is to get public art out into the world, especially in
developing and urban areas, and to foster creative expression through
cross-cultural, community-based projects and programs.
The Global Mosaic Project has been BUSY this past year!
Check out my previous blog post for a visual recap of these cool projects.
In addition to the projects at Mirebalais Hospital, Global Mosaic
Projects were also created for the New Orleans Healing Center, Dalton
School, Brooklyn Community School, Seattle Mosaic Arts, Timkatec
Orphanage in partnership with Sow A Seed in Haiti, multiple projects
with Art Creation Foundation For Children in Jacmel and more.
I have been working with Art Creation Foundation For Children in Haiti on a
project called Mosaique Jacmel, an ongoing project which has involves
the creation of large-scale mosaic murals throughout the city of
Jacmel. Through my role as lead consultant and project facilitator for
Mosaique Jacmel, I have continued to train youth in mosaic techniques,
offer professional development training and create new programs for
craft development and product design.
New programs in 2013 for The Global Mosaic Project include the
development of the Studio Program at ACFFC, focusing on entrepreneurial
training for young adults transitioning into the workforce.
2013 Global Mosaic Projects include
Projects in Mirebalais, Jacmel and Port au Prince, Haiti, New Orleans, Central America and India...
We are actively fundraising for many of these projects!
To support the Global Mosaic Project's 2013 programs and projects, please consider an end-of-year donation.
It is through donations that our projects are subsidized, so we
don't have to rely on funding being squeezed out of the already
stretched organizations we partner with. Our projects have a major
impact in communities we work in. (You can earmark your donation for a
specific project, or donate to our general fund.)
