A Dandelion... Why?
In the meanings given to the dandelion we recognize the scope of our project:
hope that opens up a horizon of cultural equitability
resilience since dandelion roots are noted for their resilience and persistence - even if all the leaves are taken off the flower still comes back
freedom that comes from the civic duty of creating critical and relevant information
optimism that emerges from the ethical, moral commitment with social justice - the dandelion yellow flower is the brightest in the urban environment in which they can thrive and metamorphose into a thousand parachutes, each with possibilities and ideas
Dandelions and Children's Games...
Picking up a dandelion flower
blowing away its seeds
following their scattered flight
and laughing with their swinging
Now waving them goodbye
because somewhere else is welcoming those seeds.
The dandelion recalls us of children’s games driven by multiple possibilities, generative and transformational.
