Coming up next week: One Mile Art Walk. "One Mile is an interactive public art installation that investigates hunger, social sustainability and systemic change. Using everyday objects, sounds, visuals, story, performance and audience interactivity, we will convert public space into a platform for transformational community awareness and cultural dialogue. Through a guided, interactive walk, One Mile invites the audience to view and engage with public art installations and pop-up performances as a way to reflect, ponder, challenge, mourn and upend the cycles of inequity that cause hunger and other ecological, social, and economic injustices." From K. Bradford, Artistic Director and Founder, pictured above.
One Mile is part of the This is Hunger program at Santa Monica College that uses art to raise awareness and respond to hunger and other social issues in our community.
This free One Mile Installation Walk runs on Tuesday, 11/29 at 11:15 am, Wednesday 11/30 at 1 pm, and Thursday 12/1 at 5 pm. All walks start at 14th and Pico in Santa Monica by the Mazon Hunger installation truck (you can't miss it).
Lots of other events for this very special free This is Hunger public forum. Check the website for all the details: www.smc.edu/AcademicAffairs/PublicPolicyInstitute/Pages/Upcoming-Events.aspx.
An update: Today I experienced the Mazon "This is Hunger" installation truck in Santa Monica, CA. Beautifully done! It was a powerful demonstration of the huge problem of hunger in our world, and what you can do to help out. I urge you to visit the exhibit or get involved with the "This is Hunger" forum, and/or donate to the Mazon.org foundation to help them with this vital cause.
