Unity Days Events

Stars of Hope Activity

Location: Downtown Mall

Stars of Hope empowers adults and children to transform individuals and communities in need of hope through the power of art therapy and messages of healing. The activity is simple, yet powerful. Simple wooden stars and paint will be made available, free of charge, to any community member who wishes to participate. They may paint their stars with any image or message of healing, unity, hope, and inspiration that they want. People may choose to keep
their stars or they may choose to pay in forward and have the stars sent to areas where human caused tragedy or natural disaster has occurred. Charlottesville received hundreds of stars from around the country in the days and weeks following August 12. To date, 80,000 stars have been painted and sent to 144 domestic communities, 37 international communities in 26

Solomon's Knot

Location: Downtown Mall

Solomon's Knot is an interactive dance project, inviting trained dancers and community members to come together to explore their identity and relation one to another through movement.  Each 15 minute performance culminates with a therapeutic discussion in which all participants share their feelings about our community, their dance experience, what it means to be a neighbor and how together we can create a safe place. No dance experience is necessary. Trained dancers will explain, demonstrate and lead each performance.
