Each child will have the opportunity to create their own ‘Connect-me-knot’  a decorative front door hanging. Actualisation of their interconnectivity will take place on 14th December 2012 from 3-4 pm in the form of a public art event ‘Hour Art’ where the children and their households will be invited to display the childrens art on the doors of their own homes, in their own community.
