One Million Bones: NOLA Fundraising Gala One Million Bones: New Orleans Saturday, May 25, 2013 from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM (PDT) Interfaith Center located on the 4th floor.
The One Million Bones Project has been fabricating human bones — a million of them in fact — all over the country and has been doing smaller installations, leading up to the major installation on the Washington Mall in June. The installation is intended to raise awareness of ongoing genocide and mass violence in the world. Each bone represents someone, who was the victim of genocide. Each bone will be placed ceremonially in the street, while survivors lie among the bones and tell the story of their experience. Profoundly moving and beautiful, it stirs awareness of ongoing horror and depravity that most people know nothing about. Of course the intention is to create mass public pressure to end genocide.
There will be a fundraiser event at the New Orleans Healing Center in the Interfaith Space in an effort to send some of the students who worked on the project to Washington, D.C to participate in the Installation event.
More information on the event is located on Eventbrite.
