Burnham Park – near 41st Pedestrian Bridge and Oakwood Beach.
Let us Rest together, breathe together, grieve together, and weave together at the unveiling of the House of Kapwa public sculpture.
How will we move mountains to protect our Earth future if we do not pause to process the mountains of our unprocessed ecological and spiritual grief?
The House of Kapwa is an interactive and ceremonial outdoor public sculpture installation honoring Rest, collective care, ecological grief, and the Filipino indigenous virtue-ethic of Kapwa: shared interconnectedness, or ‘unity-of-self-and-other.’ The House of Kapwa is a space that invites us to sense the relationship between how we care for ourselves, how we care for each other, and how we care for the Earth.
Join us in celebrating the opening of the House of Kapwa on Saturday, June 3rd.
You will be invited to adorn the sculpture by weaving plant material and flowers into its rope exterior. The ceremony will feature invited speakers, guided Rest practice, and music performances.
We invite you to bring blankets, pillows, yoga mats, and any plant material that you wish to offer during the weaving ritual.
