#POMBAA – Participatory art installation

For almost two years, young and old, visitors, guests, and members gathered around our community table, volunteering their time to make hundreds of pompoms from plastic shopping bags that could not otherwise be used after the long overdue plastic bag ban.

Without any special skills, everyone was able to sheep in to create this collective work. They trustfully followed the instructions provided, even though they didn’t know exactly what the end result would be. Becoming a pompom expert might not have been the reason to join the flock at FRIEDA. But the togetherness, fun, and opportunity to create something big kept us coming back every week to make more pompoms!

Come, and see what the FRIEDAcommunity has created!
