>Participate in a “Bone-making Event” in New Bern!


“One Million Bones is a social action arts installation designed to raise awareness of genocides and atrocities going on around the world. The main focus is on making people aware what’s happening in the Sudan, the Congo and Burma, and providing an opportunity for them to take action in response.” – www.onemillionbones.org
Events are being held throughout North Carolina, which will result in 2,500 bones being installed in Raleigh on the weekend of April 28, 2012. You are invited to become part of a bone-­making team in New Bern at any of the locations listed below. You can attend 1, or all 3. Please let us know so that we have enough clay on hand. You don’t need any artistic experience, only a good heart.
April 7 from 1 – 4pm:
Craven Arts Council
317 Middle Street, New Bern, NC
Michaelé Rose Artist Studio
413B Broad Street
Michaelé is also doing another Bone Party at Craven Community College for their fair April 12th, 6 – 8pm. It’s open to the public and all can attend!
All bones made in North Carolina will be on display in Raleigh at the Capitol on April 28th. From there all bones go to New Mexico where the artist lives and then all bones that have been made in all the states and countries will be traveling to Washington DC to be displayed on the National Mall in Spring 2013.
Michealé will have a jar for donations if anyone wants to donate to the cause, or sponsor to make a bone in someone else’s name, but coming to make bones is FREE and no donation is necessary.

About New Bern Now
Editor-in-Chief, Wendy Card, founded New Bern Now in April 2009. There were a number of reasons she developed the website. While stationed in Washington DC, she had 30 days to transfer to Naval Hospital Cherry Point and didn’t know much about the area. She was frustrated because there wasn’t a central location on the Internet for information about New Bern. Wendy retired from the Navy in Oct 2007. When our economy dived, she was trying to find her way in life and decided to give back to the community by creating a website that provided a “One Stop, Information Shop” to help people find out what’s happening in our community along with creating a free business listing to help business owners who couldn’t afford to advertise.
