In order to expand our reach within our community, we developed project Collaborate. This project enables us to work with other local, youth oriented non-profits to introduce the benefits of mindfulness practices and to create a series collaborative artwork(s) that reflect our local youth. We also connect with local businesses and invite them to display our pieces individually throughout our community. Our final goal is to have an exhibition of all collaborations at Durango Art Center, date to be announced.
To date, we have created five Collaborative pieces of public art. These pieces include Our Durango made with the bigs and littles of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southwest CO, School of Fish with the Juniper School, Peace Dove created with the students Durango Montessori, Rise Above with La Plata Youth Services and Soar was created with the 4th-8th grade students of Mountain Middle School. These pieces can be found in local businesses and schools in our community.
