Using 20,000 public-submitted, handwritten acts of kindness, from which 10 selected artists created projects. Over two community days with students, we wove the acts of kindness into different forms. I made two wearable dresses inspired by the idea of “what would we look like if we wore the acts of kindness and the way we treated people?”.
