With all the good things that happen in life, why is it so easy focus on the bad?
What would our perspective be like if we simply chose to focus on the good?
That’s the premise behind The One Good Thing Project.
The One Good Thing Project is a community art project that helps us find the good that happens each day. The best part is that it’s really easy to participate! Take a booklet. Fill it with good things. Keep it or return it to the collection.
In June, the Gallery at Main hosted the art installation and interactive project developed by IUP graduate student Emily Sciulli. Many of the returned notebooks are now kept in the library’s Zine Collection. Now, until the end of October, you can check out the installation again at the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh – Hazelwood.
Even if you can’t come to the library to get a booklet, you can still take part in the project! Just grab any notebook and start from there.
Since August, I have kept my notebook by the bed and have recorded many good things before falling asleep! I found that most of them are food related!
