“One Million Bones is a collaborative art installation designed to recognize the millions of victims and survivors who have been killed or displaced by ongoing genocides and humanitarian crises in Sudan, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Somalia and Burma.
Our Mission is to create a visible movement that will increase global awareness of these crises while raising the critical funds needed to protect and aid displaced and vulnerable survivors.
One Million Bones has partnered with Students Rebuild to leverage the power of creative activism by launching: A Path Forward Challenge. Through this partnership each bone that is made will raise $1 donation towards CARE’s work in Congo and Somalia, up to $500,000.”
Local Juneau Artist MK MacNaughton, recently organized Alaska state capital’s contribution to the One Million Bones project. With the help of 200 community members, 1000 plaster and clay bones were made and placed on the waterfront downtown.
It was a moving experience to all who attended, as the hand-made bones represented the bones of victims of the horrific atrocities that often go unheard of by many of us here in the United States and Alaska especially.
You can get more information on the installation as well as the cause at onemillionbones.org.
