About The Hexagon Project

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.

One thought on “About The Hexagon Project

  1. Art teachers – ANY teachers – should read “An Invitation to Social Change: 15 Principles for Teaching Art” by Nordlund, Speirs and Stewart, Art Education Jounal [NAEA] Setember, 2011 issue, pp 36-43. Principles applicable to any social justice issue but written around viewing and responding to Judy Chicago’s “The Dinner Party.” These principles apply to working with students and the Hexagon Project.
