WHAT IS EMBRACING OUR DIFFERENCES?

 

CHDHU proudly presents Embracing Our Differences, an outdoor art exhibition and related programs intended to demonstrate that diversity enriches our lives; that respect for differences in our thoughts and beliefs elevates the human experience; that the active rejection of prejudice and hatred enhances our own freedom; and that the suffering caused when people are not treated with dignity and respect is unacceptable.

 

The Embracing Our Differences exhibition will feature up to 39 billboard size images created by professional artists, art students, and school children from all over Long Island.  Their creations reflect their interpretation of our message, “enriching lives through diversity.”

 

The Embracing Our differences project also includes programs and activities offered throughout Long Island during the month of October by our community partners.  Public and private schools and groups are invited to visit the exhibition, either at the Nassau County Museum of Art or in Heckscher Park, and teachers will be provided with sample educational activities for use pre- and post-visit. 

 

We view tolerance as a way of thinking and feeling – but most importantly, of acting.
