The Any1Can Project is engaging student leaders and teachers at 16 schools in Charlotte and the greater metro area. They participate in a cross-school, collective effort to learn about global issues, raise funds to build a school in South Sudan, and inspire communities to get involved. Charlotte-based non-profit Mothering Across Continents developed the Any1CanSM Project to support students and teachers as an extension of MAC’s project The Global ClassSM.

The culmination of this initiative is The Any1Can Project & Art Installation: T-shirts for Social Good at Sensoria, CPCC’s annual festival. From April 1319, this giant installation will feature hundreds of T-shirts hand-painted by students. The shirts creatively highlight youth awareness of seven global issues:

Any1Can...end poverty

Any1Can...stop hunger

Any1Can...provide clean water

Any1Can...stand up for peace

Any1Can...promote education

Any1Can...be green

Any1Can...teach tolerance

Join us for the opening event, Sat. April 13 noon to 4pm, in the Taylor Hall Gym on the CPCC Central Campus (1201 Elizabeth Ave.) Free admission and parking. For details, visit Any1CanProject.org
