Ship of Tolerance by Ilya and Emilia Kabakov Foundation - Kickstarter

The Ship of Tolerance is a global public art project by Ilya and Emilia Kabakov that aims to connect communities around the world and plant the seeds of tolerance in the hearts of people.

In each city where the project takes place, the artists lead conversations with local children and teenagers (ages 6–15) about ideas of tolerance, open-mindedness, and belonging.

Following these conversations, Ilya and Emilia work with kids in the community to create drawings on fabric, which are stitched together to form the sails for a 60-feet wooden sailboat.
