Game of Clones

I had the privilege of working with Athena Aktipis to design a science communication tool as a way to explain to the public how cancer cheats. It’s called Game of Clones and while cancer is not fun nor funny I believe sharing information on why it is so hard to cure cancer inspires others to join this fight. Or as Athena explains it in her research on cancer shows us it is no longer about fighting cancer – it’s about learning to collaborate with cancer so we can use cancer clones as cooperative team players. If cancer cheats by changing the way business is done, by acting differently in every body it takes up residence in then we have to look at what can we learn from that? Here is a video on how the public game worked, followed by pictures at the public event.

If a ten year old had fun at this event and learned about how cancer cheats, they are better equipped. So that at a family event when Great Aunt Marge raises her fists and yells out “why can’t they cure cancer already?” The ten year old can explain it’s because cancer cheat. This is how we win our future . . . .

End Of the Year Tax Donation Idea

“EVERYTHING IS FREE IT ALWAYS WILL BE” but we need your help to keep it that way! 2014 marked our 10th Anniversary providing art worthy materials for creative minds free of charge.

The Art Resource Center (ARC) helps any non-profit to facilitate their art needs.
The ARC has saved thousands of pounds of waste from going to our landfills by collecting materials. When a teacher calls and says they are a new hire but the classroom is empty we fill the shelves with art supplies. When volunteers from March of Dimes want to do a special project we help with ideas and send them away with supplies. When Head Start needs tactile fabrics and inspiration for young minds we are the ones they come to for help. When a homeless artist walks through the door we give her paints and canvas and brushes.

The ARC touches well over 20,000 lives a year and our reach into the community and around the state is growing annually.

Please consider supporting the work of the ARC. Your dollars are needed to increase our space, build a gallery for recycled art exhibits and to offer classes to the community and so that we can be self sustaining.

If everyone on in our network donated $25 we would reach our 2015 goal and fulfill our dreams.

THE ARC is a 501(c) (3) nonprofit your donation is tax deductible.
