"Soar," is an interactive public art project that encourages people to identify and let go of their unseen burdens so they can become more free. How does it work? 1) Recognize something in your life that has been weighing you down or holding you back from becoming all of who you’re meant to be. This can be as general or specific as you like. 2) Select a rock that will represent your burden. Write what you want to let go of on the rock. 3) Feel the weight of the rock. Carry it with you as long as it takes for you to recognize its weight. 4) When you are ready to let go of this weight, place your rock on the ground at the display. Feel the lightness that comes from letting go. 5) Hang an origami bird to symbolize your freedom and potential to soar.
You can participate in Soar between June 1-24, 2017 on the 2200 block of Mt. Vernon Avenue, Alexandria, VA. If you would like to bring Soar to your community, contact us.
