the hopes we wear on our backs


Submit a hope for Muncie!

Throughout the month, artist Kacie Lyn Martinez will be weaving "hope strips" into her public project at the Canan Commons grates on Walnut Street in Muncie, Indiana.  Anyone can participate by joining Kacie Lyn at the project site each Saturday in August, from 11 - 2 PM. At the site, the public is invited to write a hope for Muncie on a strip of fabric which will be woven into the project.  If you can't be there in person, you can submit a hope for Muncie via the form below!  The artist will create a hope strip for you and that piece will be included in the public project. 

What is a hope strip?

A hope can be anything you hope / wish / would like to see happen in Muncie! It can be big or small, for the town, for the people, or for yourself. By putting the hope into the universe, we want to help Muncie grow as a dynamic community!

Want to participate in person? Check out our event page for more information. Or follow the project on social media with #munciehopes.
