Post Your Hexagons to Instagram and Tag #HexagonProject2020
The Hexagon Project is about expressing themes of connection and interdependence through hexagon-shaped artwork. We encourage you to express yourself about all the themes of interdependence as we always have, but now we’re asking you to share your experience with the Corona Virus and the changes to your life. By posting hexagons on Instagram using the hashtags #HexagonProject2020 and #HexagonProject you can make connections with participants throughout the world.
How are you and the people you know affected by the Corona Virus and the changes to daily life? Post your hexagonal artwork and photos about what you are doing, feeling, seeing around you — in your home, neighborhood, city or region. We will share images tagged #HexagonProject2020 on our Instagram account, @InterdependenceHexagonProject.

What a truly wonderful outcome for everyone … the Hexagon Project … gives voice to so many children and young people to speak out for protection of our world. As Joy Palmer notes, “education is about healing and wholeness. It is about empowerment, liberation, transcendence, about renewing the vitality of life and importantly it is about finding and claiming our place in the world” … the Hexagon Project takes all who participate into this space.

I find that many teenagers really do have concerns about the world in which they live and they value the opportunity to have a voice. Because the [interdependence] theme is broad enough, they were able to adapt it to their own personal concerns.

Regardless of our interests and our different opinions we all search for the same things — Peace, Force, Love and safe life. Thank you for this encouragement that gives my students a strong motivation to develop their thinking and their call for peace.

Students in three different schools, in three different countries … exchanged letters both in English and Japanese with some art on the hexagon-shaped cards. This is one of the intercultural communication programs based on progressing their writing ability, not only motivating in language education, but also inspiring students with global vision.

I am very happy that I collaborated with you. My students had the opportunity to realize how powerful is art to send a message. The Hexagon Project makes young people gain their hope that their voices matter. Thank you for giving the opportunity to grow and be a better person and teacher through collaboration and visualizing a better world.

Our students in Nepal have been curious, creative, and critical in thinking about the themes of INTERDEPENDENCE. The Hexagon Project has helped to raise awareness of brotherhood, sisterhood and connectedness across the world.
