Planning this national community engagement art project, The Keys to Our American Dreams, is an enormous undertaking....so many different elements to consider.
What I have learned from this project so fan, is that everyone is creative and everyone has something of value to say. We have learned that as a people, we are more alike than different. This is an important message and that’s why we are taking this project nationwide.
Right now I am looking to book venues to gather the KeyStories, my plan is to showcase stories from mainstream America as well as underrepresented communities. Some of my ancestors were Amish. I would love to gather stories from that community. Any ideas of other groups that need to be included?
Lenore Lyons is passionate about igniting the spark that happens when people think creatively and get big ideas. There is something about riffling through a large tray of keys that encourages people of all ages to think about possibilities for their life and their loved ones.
