Self assembly invites participants to make a stick figure, a representation of themselves, from fallen branches by assembling limbs, torso and head together with plaster bandages and then to create a community of figures with other participants. This is a collaborative creative encounter as you own figure cannot stand alone and needs to be attached to another. Together the figures will create a community that celebrates difference.
