What is the Interdependence Day Hexagon Project?
High school and junior high school/middle school students (grades 5-12) are invited to respond creatively to the many themes of global interdependence – real-world issues – and become a part of an international movement to create a more civil, peace-minded and just world. This project is a meaningful vehicle for allowing young people to think and respond about issues of personal and global importance. The project founders envision filling the Melberger Arts Center in Scranton from floor to ceiling with interconnected hexagons that tell the story about students’ vision and understanding of connectedness.
Why a hexagon?
The hexagon is a composition of complex relationships, interdependent lines, like bonds of human connection, strengthened in multiples into an infinite network of connections. It maintains its own presence as a shape, symbol of light and life, yet, structurally, destined to be part of a whole – a splendid architectural element, infinitely expandable.
