On Friday March 5th, PROJECT WE BEAM will light up downtown Bellingham and living rooms everywhere with an interactive art installation for all ages! The hybrid virtual and socially-distanced event is open to the public and will be viewable on the north wall of the Pickford Film Center from 6 PM to 8 PM during Downtown First Friday.
PROJECT WE BEAM will project the thoughts, feelings, and artwork of 5th grade students from Roosevelt Elementary School alongside moderated live community conversations about topics related to climate change. The program will also be livestreamed on Facebook, YouTube, and Zoom for at-home audiences.
All ages are invited to respond to the program and join the real-time, audience conversation from the event or from home by commenting on the live streams or by texting PROJECT WE BEAM at (360) 515-7618 (with a parent or guardian’s permission). Approved messages will even be projected live as part of the program!
