Today marks the third year of SARCC participating in the Red Sand Project. The Red Sand project was first launched and created by interdisciplinary artist and activist Molly Gochman in 2014, after realizing the depths to which slavery continues to be a contemporary reality… Molly recognized that to begin finding a solution to such a widespread challenge, increased public awareness and engagement would be essential. She initiated the first Red Sand Project action in Miami, where she filled the cracks of sidewalks in and around the Art Basel Miami Beach pavilion with red sand. The approach was symbolic, with the grains of sand representing those individuals who fall through the cracks—whether the cracks of our social, economic, and political systems or those of our personal consciousness.
Today, Red Sand Project actions have been done in all 50 states and in 70 countries, with more than one million participants.
“We can’t merely walk over the most marginalized people in our communities—those who fall through the metaphoric cracks.”
