The 2013 Great Lakes Bioneers Chicago networking event happened at Roosevelt University last weekend -- with dozens of wonderful discussions, keynote speeches, performances and other activities. I facilitated an interactive banner-making project at the university, in a sunlit alcove with a view of downtown Chicago and Lake Michigan in the distance.
The banner reads "End Fracking Now"; in addition to that phrase, event attendees contributed to it -- with words and illustrations that they drew and wrote on swatches of canvas. It was exciting to witness and be part of this community-interactive project, with dozens of people whose expressions appeared on the banner -- a "patchwork quilt" of creative and thoughtfully articulated voices about fracking.
Here are some photos of the project. (More photos will be added soon.) Check out the Great Lakes Bioneers Chicago website to find out more about the excellent work they have been doing.
