Imagination Squared: Pathways to Resilience | AthensGA2020

Connecting Diverse Communities Through Athens’ Stories, Symbols and Sounds of Resilience.

Imagination Squared is a free social experiment that incites contemplation and conversation on how we strengthen and adapt in a rapidly changing world. Free wood 5″ squares are offered around Athens for individuals or teams to modify as they consider the role resilience plays in their lives or research. After squares are returned, participants may add stories of resilience. Stories and squares are uploaded on The official unveiling of all returned squares will be exhibited at The Lyndon House in Athens, GA in October, 2020. Later, Imagination Squared will be gifted to the City of Athens for permanent installation.

Imagination Squared showcases individual and collective notions of resilience; right here, right now.
