P.S. for PostSecret

P.S. for PostSecret | Contemporary Artists Using Nature | Scoop.it

 

Everybody has secrets. Some are too heavy to keep to oneself. If you can no longer stand the burden of a secret, why not sharing it and still make it a secret? That’s possible and you can do it with art at PostSecret. Besides, from time to time reading other people’s secrets can be a reassuring action.

PostSecret (http://www.postsecret.com/) is an ongoing community mail art project, created by Frank Warren, in which people mail their secrets anonymously on a homemade postcard. Selected secrets are then posted on the PostSecret website, or used for PostSecret's books or museum exhibits (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PostSecret).

Want Kids to Be More Altruistic? Give Them Arts Education - Education - GOOD

Want Kids to Be More Altruistic? Give Them Arts Education - Education - GOOD | Contemporary Artists Using Nature | Scoop.it

"People who engage in the arts or watch others do so are more likely to be civically engaged, socially tolerant, and altruistic.  At a time when arts budgets are being decimated, it's concerning that we're depriving students of such critical benefits. Indeed, "If policymakers are concerned about a decline in community life," says LeRoux, "the arts shouldn't be disregarded as a means to promote an active citizenry."

Yeah Hilary!! Hoot Hoot!
