One Million Bones is a large-scale social arts practice, which means combining education, hands-on art making, and public installations to raise awareness of ongoing genocides and mass atrocities in places like Sudan, South Sudan, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Somalia and Burma.
The project goal is collecting 1,000,000 handcrafted bones for a three-day installation event, June 8-10, 2013, on the National Mall in Washington, D.C
The installation will exist as a collaborative site of conscience to honor victims and survivors, and will also serve as a visual petition against ongoing conflicts and a resounding call for much needed and long overdue action.
The National Mall installation will feature international speakers and performers, educational workshops, a candlelight vigil, and the opportunity to Act Against Atrocities during an advocacy day on Capitol Hill led by our partners at the Enough Project.
