A creative collaboration between

Resource Depot and the

Conniston Middle School

art department.

“The deepest level of communication is not communication, but communion.

It is wordless…beyond speech…beyond concept.”

- Thomas Merton

In this generation growing up can be difficult. With all the ways we can communicate through technology, sometimes we seem more separated. Common Threads shows us how we are all similar no matter what culture or background we come from. Students from Conniston Middle School guided by their teachers Lisette Cedeño and Jade Henderson, used fabric, string, and other donations from Resource Depot to make their work. Seeing these mismatched materials and how they work together reinforces that the same is true for people.
