How can we change the world if we don’t start in our own communities? We need to scale that back and start with immediate community needs. Let’s share space with one another and paint positive change together during this collaborative banner design. This painted banner will hold conversations around joy, healing, solutions, and connectivity within ourselves and one another. Our community needs healing, happiness, and connections!
Accessibility note: scent sensitivity – paint.
