The Travelling Tool Library is a community effort involving many supporters. Our supporters have donated administrative guidance, physical labor, funding, and creative suggestions that have been invaluable to our project’s success.
The Travelling Tool Library has been selected by the Cornell Council for the Arts to receive a $5,000 grant and participate in its 2016 Biennial, a program-based exhibition of artwork that engages with the most urgent questions facing artists within culture and life in the 21st century. Participants include leading international artists, arts faculty and students. The Travelling Tool Library was Building Community’s response to the prompt: What is the cultural production of empathy? The question is derived from the Biennial’s theme, “Abject Object Empathies”.
