UNITY Project Celebrates Individuality and Community

August 28, 2017

Sept. 21–24, 1033 Broad Ave. Grinnell, Iowa

Members of the Grinnell community are invited to take part in an interactive art project designed to celebrate the uniqueness of each member of the community and raise awareness of how labels are impacting our perception of and interactions with the world.

Participants will string yarn between poles labeled with statements that reflect their identities to create a yarn canopy of human connectedness, ultimately showing that we are all connected by something.

The UNITY Project, 1033 Broad Ave., Grinnell, Iowa, will be open to the public the following days/times:

  • September 21, 4-7 p.m.
  • September 22, 5-8 p.m.
  • September 23, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.
  • September 24, 10 a.m.-2 p.m.

Sponsors include Grinnell's Offices of Intercultural Affairs, Diversity and Inclusion, International Student Affairs, and Community Enhancement and Engagement. The Grinnell Arts Council is a community partner.
