Sweater #118

In September, ARTivention got an opportunity to share this project with a sister city partnership between Scottsdale, AZ and Cairns, AU.   22 sweaters were shipped in hopes of people across the planet interacting with the placement and finding of these sweaters to benefit the Australian counter part to the National Coalition for the Homeless. The exhibition is currently underway. So, for the Australian sweaters, 2 sweaters will be posted per day that will simultaneously record actions taking place on various parts of this globe to help raise awareness for our sisters and brothers in need. The top sweater is in Australia and the bottom sweater was knitted by Pamela Murray, a Canadian knitter sponsoring an organization called Raising the Roof.  The bottom sweater was placed in Oahu, Hawaii which is ironically as close to Australia as the U.S. can get, so this was a great coincidence that ARTivention received this sweater on the inauguration of the Australian partnership.
