Creating greater understanding and respect between people

Every year, Ko-Falen looks forward to working at Portland's ART IN THE PEARL celebration in downtown Portland. We volunteer in the "Hands On" booths, working with young and old, teaching an artform we learned in Mali--recycled tin toy sculptures. Using aluminum soda cans we've collected throughout the year, we share techniques to cut, hammer and wire whimsical dragonflies, butterflies and flowers with hundreds of art makers!
