Community of Caring

The Community of Caring Flags project is a visual representation of our interconnection and commitment to caring for and protecting our community.

What is this Project about?

2020 marks transformative moment in human history, one that underscores our interdependent wellbeing. Our individual actions impact the wellbeing of others directly and indirectly.

Inspired by traditional Tibetan Prayer Flags which are intended to bring promote peace, compassion, strength, and wisdom, this project came out of the PSU Fall 2020 Opening Task Force, Greater Plymouth Community & Alumni Subcommittee working with the Museum of the White Mountains, and aims to provide the Plymouth community with an opportunity to share our common fears, to honor the suffering, and to grieve the loss brought on by the pandemic, but also the opportunity for all to help build community and unity between campus and community.
