The Joining Project will be hosting a knitting event at the Boston Center for the Arts. Knitters of all skill levels are welcome, as well as those who want to learn to knit. Additionally, "wish tags" will be provided for participants to write messages that will be included in a public installation of fabric arts on the Mass Ave bridge from June to September.
The Joining Project was conceived in the heart of an artist and runner as a wish to connect the Boston and Cambridge communities in a positive heartfelt experience. Using the Harvard Bridge as a psychical connector between the two cities, this installation will both uplift those who experience it and knit the wishes for our cities together. The project connects runners and artists from various communities to link fresh, inspiring and positive experiences with The Boston Marathon.
