Giving the natural world a greater presence in our streets... |
Imagine a Studio
Imagine a place where you are inspired to create your expression of awe and appreciation of the natural world…then share it with others on Procession Day.
Imagine an invitation open to all to participate in weaving wonder along with people of diverse ages, abilities, and cultural backgrounds.
Imagine an open studio where you can come on your own and make a giant puppet or float; design a costume, mask, or headdress; and batik a windsock or banner.
Imagine art and music workshops - dozens of them, at low cost - where you can learn new skills and techniques to create your creature.
Imagine the support of an amazing gathering of family, friends, artists and helpful volunteers, offering all the inspiration you can shake a rattle at.
Imagine a huge collection of recycled materials—art supplies, craft supplies, scavenged stuff - all just waiting to be transformed into a work of art and celebration.
Imagine a circle of community where dancing elephants, prancing wildebeest, pirouetting butterflies, wheeling birds, and undulating salmon rivers practice their movements for Procession Day.
Imagine a building full of music, percussion, and rhythm — the heartbeat of Procession of the Species — and the sounds and sights of instruments being made and practiced.
You just imagined the Procession community art studio!
