Iraqi Children's Art Project

Many folks at FUSS have been involved in the effort to bring refugees from Iraq to Schenectady. Here's a project for our children and youth to participate in with Iraqi children and youth who have come to the Capital District as refugees.

The Sanctuary for Independent Media in Troy is sponsoring an Iraqi Children's Art Project March 23, 28-29. It is called, "How Will They Know Us? Creating a culture of peace." They are looking for American children between the ages of 8 - 18 to help create two murals with children from Iraq.

They will be led by artists who will help them design and create the murals. We have some FUSS youth participating. It would be wonderful if we had more. They are looking for 16 American children and youth.
