This year, the Chicago Fringe Festival will conclude on the 10th anniversary of the September 11 attacks.
To mark this milestone, we are organizing a commemorative event in partnership with HumanThread, a Pilsen-based nonprofit dedicated to the promotion of peace and justice through education, art and culture.
We invite all friends of Fringe to add to this event in a special way by contributing to the creation of One Common Thread for Peace. Cut a 12-inch strip of ribbon, fabric or some other knot-able material, write a message of hope on it or simply sign your name, and drop off or send the "thread" to the HumanThread Center:
Human Thread Center
645 W. 18th Street
Chicago, IL 60616
These individual “threads” will be tied together and transformed into a work of art symbolizing our collective hopes for a more unified and peaceful world. The artwork will be unveiled as part of the 9/11 commemorative event scheduled to take place at the Fountainhead Lofts Art Building in East Pilsen on the last day of the Festival.
**Please share this message and spread the word about the special thread collection project. We hope to see you all at the Fountainhead.**
