MMM is an interactive, hands-on humanitarian project integrating art and storytelling to communicate connections. Tactile objects are introduced to support exercises that access self expression, sharing, story prompting, perception and community building. Individuals draw in one inch squares referencing an object. A story is written with their drawing. Drawings and stories are added to a public are work. Since 2011, MMM has collected thousands of drawings and stories from diverse populations including, refugees, students and at risk youth from 196 countries.
Participants in MMM cannot distinguish race, creed, color, age, gender, social demographic, ethnicity or nationally. We all have our marks and the stories form which they came. MMM is an entry point to reveal our perceptions of diversity to communicate we are not our exteriors.
