Poster for the HandMade Parade, 2017

 

(in preparation for):
THE HANDMADE PARADE–Get your Hands Dirty & MAKE something!

Saturday October 7th, Main St., Jamestown

Join fellow citizens and community groups in a collective art experience that no one will soon forget… the handmade parade is a parade for anyone that wants to celebrate creativity and diversity in a non-political activity that fosters community involvement and creative expression. Described as a “walking theatrical performance”, our parade will also glow after dark! everyone and anyone is invited to participate and get busy building their small float, prop, or costume. The only ‘rules’ are: no live animals, no written words, logos, or motorized vehicles (motorized wheelchairs acceptable) and all parade participants are required to be in costume. Easy right?

 

Attendance is FREE!–To participate in the parade all we require is your commitment to CREATIVITY!

Though the classes have themes, no one is limited to just that subject. Pursue your own ideas, use the materials we have or bring your own! We’re here to help. Many of the projects may take more than one or two days, so come as often as it takes to create your costume or puppet!

We will provide instruction for free and as many materials as we have. Donations for the workshops will be gratefully accepted, be they  material or financial. If anyone would like to aid us we have an online donation site set up: https//www.gofundme.com/handmadeparade.
