#POMBAA – Participatory art project 3/1/24

Join us for the reveal of #POMBAA !

FRIEDA & FRIEDAcommunity offer a welcoming space to people of all ages and diverse backgrounds brought together around a curated program of activities and events focused on food, art and culture.

Our large-scale participatory art projects are opportunities for everyone to collaborate on installations that bring joy to members and visitors alike!

For two years, young and old, visitors, and members, gathered, volunteering to make hundreds of pom poms from plastic bags that could not otherwise be used following the plastic bag ban. Without any special skills, everyone was able to sheep in to create this collective work. The attendees followed the instructions, 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. The togetherness, and opportunity to create something big kept us coming back every week, to make more pompoms!
