A collaborative project of two local nonprofits—From A Child’s Point of View and the Bellingham Youth Media Project—PROJECT WE BEAM was born of a desire to create space for children to engage adults in conversations about our shared planet.
What if, suddenly, the children understood what the animals were saying? And the animals understood the children?
PROJECT WE BEAM presents public art events illustrating conversations between children and adults about our shared planet.
Engaging for the whole family, PROJECT WE BEAM lights up downtown Bellingham and local living rooms with an interactive art installation for all ages! The hybrid virtual and socially-distanced events are open to the public and will be viewable on select dates during Downtown Bellingham’s First Fridays.
The premier event of PROJECT WE BEAM projected on a public wall the responses of 5th-grade students at Roosevelt Elementary School to havoc caused by climate change. Their feelings, ideas, and proposed pragmatic inventions launched a public conversation. The program was live-streamed on Facebook, YouTube, and Zoom for at-home audiences.
