MANY HANDS, ONE HEART The Beautiful Project: Uganda 2018


It has been such a joy to work with 60 students at Kassanda Secondary School in Uganda to create a mural on their 40,000 liter water tank. Day after day we worked side-by-side to create a work of beauty and inspiration for their school and community.

Through the common bond of art making we quickly come to know one another and ourselves so intimately. We learn about lives and share in the challenges, the blood sweat and tears AND the joy, laughter, and triumphs together. Discoveries are made and hidden worlds and treasures are revealed as transformative power of art making changes us and opens our hearts and minds.

We have witnessed again and again in these projects that the creative spirit is always faithfully waiting to come forth if given just the slightest encouragement even in the darkest of moments to illuminate our divinity and indomitable spirits within. May this mural serve as a symbol of life, communion with nature and each other, and the creative spirit that is alive and well in each of us waiting to burst forth!
