BLOCK PARTY INSTALLATION - Threshold of Equity

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Threshold of Equity is an object in space that represents the crossing of a boundary. The threshold in this installation is a door, a universal boundary that we interact with everyday.  As an object that we interact with everyday, independent of culture, age, religion, race, gender or ability, we take the object out of its usual context and place it in the public realm.  We invite visitors to cross the threshold and engage the barriers by sharing their ideas about what equity means to them. The interactive installation will provoke question and thought. Each personal experience through the Threshold of Equity will unite the community into a collective whole.
