Kindness - Adventure - Travel - Fun - Bravery.
MISSION: KINDNESS is a one-of-a-kind launch party extravaganza for the film American Bear: An Adventure in the Kindness of Strangers, and all of our art-based community initiatives.
Travel through our different stations and join more kind strangers in experiencing each part of the American Bear project!
The event will showcase:
1- Our KINDNESS KITstallation: an interactive art exhibit showcasing the photos taken by our Kindness Captured participants, featuring take-home missions!
2- The Energy Exchange: a give what you can, take what you need, exchange of all things intangible.
3- Share The Road: an interactive map of our personal geographies.
4- Storybooth: share your story of kindness through photos, video, or audio storytelling a la www.iamakindstranger.com.
5- Crafty Cards for Strangers: a family-focused crafting station to write letters to friends you have yet to meet.
Plus a sneak preview of the film, an awesome raffle, and a few other amazing surprises.
Indulge in sweet treats baked from scratch, and home-made chips, salsa and guac generously provided by The Mission.
Entrance is free, but this is a fundraiser, so bring what you can. We'll be accepting cash, credit cards, and checks for our raffle, and all funds go towards getting the film out to the world (through film fest submissions in the immediate future) and putting on more kindness events in Syracuse and beyond!
