smARTpower/Sharing Culture Collaborative Project was a series of multi-faceted workshops that included the collaborative creation of artifacts, celebrations, public art installations, and digital documentation to foster new connections and build community. Participants modeled inherently transformative ideas about what the practice of art could be, its societal benefits, and how it could be a force for personal discovery and mutual understanding. Through the exploration of progressive educational philosophies, innovative democratic theory, and diverse contemplative exercises, participants reflected upon personal identity within their diverse and overlapping communities and created public artworks and community celebrations that expressed a variety of cultural and aesthetic positions.
