Overview of Idea

:

Our idea for social change is to put a series of itinerant kite-dispensers in different communities around the world. When you get lost in the simplicity and beauty of a great kite flight, all your troubles melt away. When one person experiences this inner change, they want to share it with others.

The Specifics: What will the $2,500 fund?

The money from the GOOD Grant will go toward art materials for building "The Kite Machine - Chicago Edition", a sequel to the New York Kite Machine. Also, building materials for kite production, increasing access to arts programming, necessary permits, and general traveling expenses: gas, rentals, permits, etc.

Can't wait for Kite Machine Chicago. Kite Machine NYC enjoyed such a fun first season this past summer, and the way people's faces just light up when that kite flutters in the air is the best sight. I can't believe how much this project has developed a sense of craftsmanship and community in such a short time. Please vote and share and ask us any questions you might have about the project! Thank you.
