The Power of Place, the Meaning of Home Tufts University Hillel; 1997.

With the community at Tufts University Hillel, I facilitated 120 people through a series of workshops to collaboratively create a 24- by 8-foot quilted wall. Workshops were held on the various aspects of Sukkot where participants were educated about the holiday and then expressed their individual ideas on mixed-media collage on fabric squares that were laminated to make up the squares of the quilt. Themes included the meaning of home, the journey towards freedom, protection of the environment, and the crisis of homelessness. This wall became the central focus of a temporary outdoor dwelling during the Jewish Holiday of Sukkot.
