The FLUID Project
Future Kind is honored to sponsor the FLUID Project as part of our R.E.N.O. program to catalyze sustainability projects in Reno that align with our mission. We believe our community will be stronger and more resilient when we work together than if we try to do it alone. The FLUID Project catalyzes collaboration and raises awareness about plastic, water, and community through participatory art.
The art is created by Sharon, Zoe, and Adrienne of Human Innerface. Active community participation is coordinated by Tamara Wright of Ecolution Studio. Several community collaborators have joined to help provide educational resources and support, enhancing the educational components of the FLUID installation.
Raising community awareness through art is the first step, the FLUID project brings that awareness into collaborative action through continued coordination and community development.
In partnership with Ecolution Studio, we have launched a six-month community wide plastic film collection. The plastic will be up-cycled by Trex to create a bench for the new Nevada Cares Campus Safe Camp demonstrating new ways to think about our waste.
We envision the art and plastic collection sites traveling to temporary locations throughout Reno. Pitch Black Printing will serve as a permanent collection site over the six month period. If you are interested in hosting a collection site or volunteering to help please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
