Citizenship Month Art
The “Be the Peace – Be the Hope” pilot program will culminate in several traveling exhibitions that document our “Cycle of Hope.” Displayed in various locations, including Houston Public Libraries, Harris County Library, participating schools, and the tunnel at Houston City Hall, these exhibitions will take viewers on a visual journey from life in Houston to life in refugee camps and back. These presentations will offer glimpses of the entire program through photographs, video footage, and personal art pieces created by the children from both worlds. As a citizen led call-to-action, we will host a contest inviting the Houston youth to propose ideas and projects that encourage local actions of hope.
The idea behind this program and these exhibitions is to demonstrate how hope can travel through different countries and cultures through the compassionate spirits of children. Through this program, children can create bridges between their cultures, using simple actions to plant seeds of hope locally while sharing hope across oceans where it can take root and spread even further.
