THE STORY:

Little Cocoons for the South Bronx is part of a world project created by artist Kate Browne. Kate has become a true inspiration to me. She came to my school, not knowing what to expect and got right to work. On her own she created a small team that taught my students (myself as well) how to see their community with a different lens. They no longer saw bullet shells as just another shoot out but as a cry to end violence in the south Bronx. Once they studied their own community as anthropologist, artists, and even humanitarians they gathered "garbage" and create pieces of art called cocoons. Each cocoon symbolized a personal dream.



For children living in the projects, dealing with so much adversity one would think that these students would dream about having a million dollars or a luxurious mansion but they didn't. They simply wished to be able to go to college, to end gang violence in the Bronx, to see their mothers in their native country....they dreams were honest, pure, beautiful. Doing this project in my school helped my students in a very different way.
