“Threads of Commonality” ONOs 2015
April 11, 2015
CALL FOR ARTISTS! “Threads of Commonality”
3rd Annual OUR NEIGHBORS OURSELVES
Art Event & Fundraiser
Saturday, April 11, 2015 @ Aurora Cultural Arts District
The experience of displacement is not unique to “refugees”.
We all experience moments of being out-of-place.
What are the barriers that prevent us from a sense of belonging?
What does it look like to triumph over those barriers?
OUR GOAL is to create threads of commonalities through a wide variety personal perspectives which depict the sense of feeling at home wherever and whoever we are.
All contributing artists will have free admission to the event.
Musical entertainment by The Flobots and Kid Astronaut.
