We all have a unique windows from which we view the world, we only need to look to see.
Windows of Worlds is an annual community project where picture frames, each uniquely designed, are suspended from the beautiful fall-colored trees of Edgewood College’s campus using fishing line for an entire week. This display provides the artistic metaphor that we all have a unique window from which we view the world; we only need to take the time to look. The frames look like they're floating.
This year during Windows of Worlds 2, GESWERK’s goal is to collect over 500 frames, enlisting the creative talents from every high school in the Madison Metropolitan School District and beyond. In doing so, the project will demonstrate the power of collaborative creativity and what can be accomplished when we work together with it.
The installation of frames will culminate into a massive community festival celebrating everyone’s collective achievements [which is where we need your help]. This celebration is designed to show that there are no limitations as to how creativity can bring people together, and to what the community can produce when it acts in concert with all its parts. Complete, it will be a concrete example that demonstrates no matter where it comes from, creativity in all respects can bring us all together, which builds community for the better.
The celebration is FREE for the community to enjoy!
Where do dollars go?:
- WoWumentary: 2012
What's a "WoWumentary"?:
A WoWumentary is a documentary that we have produced by All in the Timing Productions, featuring much of what goes into the WoW project. For a better understanding, please check out the full length WoWumentary: 2011 from last year.
GESWERK is a constructive program that celebrates community building through collaborative creativity. Through various projects using creative energy and the arts, our aim is to bridge cultural gaps and create space where people can celebrate diversity regardless of who they are. With the belief in a more just and compassionate world, GESWERK is creativity with a cause.
What does "GESWERK" mean?:
GESWERK is short for: gesamtkunstwerk [guh-zahmt-koonst-verk], which means “total art” in German.
We don't want to overstretch your generosity, so we're merely hoping to use Kickstarter as an avenue to subsidize our expenses. Total, WoW2 will cost approximately $10,000. Edgewood College is contributing $3,000. The rest of the money we're seeking out from kindhearted contributions from local businesses...and you.
Everything raised beyond our Kickstarter goal will go towards the $4,000 that we're seeking out from local businesses, saving us a lot of time.
