01 Mar MANITOU CHOOSES LOVE: Twelve Days of Unification (May 9 through May 20)
MANITOU CHOOSES LOVE PROJECT
Twelve Days of Unification
Smokebrush Foundation for the Arts, in collaboration with Colorado Institute of Conflict Resolution & Creative Leadership, is delighted to be celebrating LOVE! The Manitou Chooses Love Project welcomes our 14 Ukrainian friends into Manitou Springs during Twelve Days of Unification from May 9 thru May 20.
The project seeks to encourage a strong, vibrant, sustainable community of people who love this city and our world, engaging in social change and conscious of how our actions affect the whole. These 12 days of unification are intended to encourage reconciliation of gender and cultural differences by awakening the collective heart of humanity, creating cross-cultural dialogues, experiences and celebrating diversity.
