This page is continually under construction. Many large projects / events are still not written in yet.

We are carving history together, thinking globally, working locally. Creating history on a low budget with who and what is all around us!

What is coming together here, like the pieces of a puzzle, are the cumulative efforts of thousands of people over a ten / twelve year period. Years ago the newspapers used to publish those connect the dot drawings, which we still see in some places. For children who grew up with the dots in their head, filling in and slowly materializing, carving history over time with many people is raising play to an art form, requiring patience, vision, imagination and a great leap of faith.
