E3: A hidden treasure

Intro

Intro

Everything came full circle for Dana Divine the day she was diagnosed with breast cancer. She wanted everything and everybody to come together for her healing process. She gathered information from friends and her community, and sought the confidence of clergy, chefs, and stylists. Strangers she would commune with during chemotherapy became close confidantes whose similar stories bound them together. A reminder that “…We’re all in this together.”

Shortly after Dana was cancer free, she wrote “Dog Parks & Coffee Shops.” Themes of urgency, healing & bonding from her personal battle informed the music and lyrics. She gave me an original song, to analyze, that was inspired by her cancer walk. I designed a conceptual master plan that was informed by her music. The Parti Sketch for the design became the pattern for the scarf.

Breast Cancer Awareness is the cause that can activate a response to a lack of education, entertainment & employment in some of our neighborhoods. This Parti Sketch is an urgent response to violence & economic discourse. Conceptually, the TRAIL: E3 is the hidden treasure, creating neighborhood change; our “By stander Effect.”
