Visiting French artist and scientist Michel will talk about this international project and movement that asks participants to design their own planet. From Michel, "Come design your planet and invent a path for the future of mankind. A new art is born: the planetary design. Everyone is invited to participate in this creative emergence where all cultures will be able to unfold their genius." Appropriate for all ages. If you speak French, all the better.
Participants will imagine and create what their planet would look and feel like as they use watercolor paints. In a context where mankind and the planet earth are challenged by major questions about long term global future, you are invited to a very unique workshop led by a profound and famous "avant garde" artist of the 20th century. Donations are welcome for the paper and project.
