At the end of 2013, the 6 Degrees of Creativity Random Acts of Art Adventure made it’s 16th stop of the year and country #2 after crossing the border from the US into Canada (yay!):
Postcard from the Pouch: Creative Goodness received by Lani
Here’s a look at the page that Lani created for the pouch’s traveling creative Passport.
After the pouch’s visit in Prospect, it then traveled to Julie in Perth, Ontario:
Julie’s page that she added to the Passport Book:
And the art Julie created inspired by the creative goodness from inside the pouch:
Julie’s gift of art above is being given to a good friend with this beautiful poem on the back:
A Winter Blessing
By Dr. Rebecca Parker
Come, she cries to us.In the shadowed quiet of winter’s light
earth speaks softly
of her longing.
Because the wild places are in tears.Kneel down here
on the frosty grass,
and feel the prayer buried in the ground.Bend your ear to my heart
and listen hard.Love this world, she whispers.
Distill peace from the snow
and water the cities
with mercy.Weave wonder from the forest
and clothe grief
with beauty.Rest in the rhythm of the turning year,
Trace the bending arc
Rounding the curve toward justice.
And vow anew to do no harm.The winter trees stand watch
haloed in the last gleams of the slanting sun.
Glory sings here.
Heaven echoes the call:
Repeat the sounding joy.Make your life an answer:
Thank you to Lani and Julie for sending in these photos! The pouch is already back to its travels in Canada– onward to Owen Sound, Ontario and then to Edmonton, Alberta. It’s exciting to keep seeing all this creative goodness shared among us and used for inspiration. In 2014, the Random Acts of Art Pouch has a full year of adventures: returning back to the US and traveling to Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and Asia! Stay connected here or on Facebook
to follow its travels during this New Year…Happy 2014!
About the project: A 8 x 6 inch canvas pouch filled with various artsy stuff, is mailed amound participants to make some creative goodness with…then the created art is given away in a random act of art to someone else! The pouch gets filled back up with more creative stuff & then mailed again to the next participant to continue the creative cycle! This project has 40+ more stops over the next 12 months (more or less!) to destinations in the US, Canada, Italy, the UK, India, Singapore, New Zealand, and Australia.
