What is 'Sky Day Project'?
Sky Day Project is an international citizen artwork designed to bring us together to show we care about our sky.
We all protect the things we care about and now our sky needs us. But how many people care?
Use your creativity to show you care and can be counted among those who want us all to come together across cultures and borders to protect our sky for the benefit of all.
Participation is free and open to all ages. See project videos below.
Who is taking part?
Responsible organizations all over the world. Here's a few - New End(London)/The Delaware Contemporary/Adler Planetarium/Mom's Clean Air Force/Lycee Claudel (CA)/Newport Art Museum/Northwestern University/American Montessori Society/International Planetarium Society/New Trier High School/Lycee Francais de Chicago/Evanston Art Museum/Institute of Environmental Science for Social Change (Manilla)/Matakana School (NZ)/Australian Meteorological and Oceanographic Society, just to name a few. And more schools/groups/organizations are signing up everyday.
How do we take Part?
Once your group is registered and has its two hashtags from us at Only One Sky take a few moments ANYTIME between now and Sky Day (September 22) to look up at our sky and reflect on how much we all need it. How it supports all life and protects us from the harshness of space. How it isn't just something way up there but something all around us. It is the air we breathe and the water we drink. And think about how by wrapping completely around our planet our sky connects us all as one global family, living and breathing under one, shared sky. It only stand to reason we should take great care of it for each other
Then use your creativity to photograph the sky above you. Make it your own! No-one see the sky quite like you do. And remember to make your photograph all about the sky. This is very important. The Sky Day Project challenge is to find a spot where your picture will be about the sky ONLY - nothing else. Any hint of people, lamp posts, mountains, horizons, trees etc. will get weeded out by our filters and will not get into the artwork :(
