The Connective Kite

We will explore kites as a medium for critical conversation, collaborative healing and meditation. We will learn ways kites have been created and flown as peaceful resistance, and connect them to contemporary social and economic issues. We will construct and fly a modular tetrahedral kite, representing the intersectionality of contemporary struggle, the necessity of solidarity in uplifting issues and collaboration in forming solutions.
