Hands On—A Community Hand-Casting Project was designed to facilitate real human connections and foster empathy within our community of Columbia, SC. Over the course of 2017, we will be casting the clasped hands of strangers, diverse in every aspect which makes up our human race. In the process we will be highlighting our commonalities and shared experiences, rather than our differences. Through sculpture, writing, and photography we will be sharing and documenting our journey of finding out how we are all connected in this human experience.
