Red Trunk Project Kickoff at The OUTSIDE IN Gallery

Event description:

The Red Trunk Project, founded in 2017, is a cultural initiative based on the idea that children should learn to Respect Every Difference-the RED in Red Trunk. The organization's goals are to give students an immersive, hands-on cultural learning experience in a fun and memorable way and to create a brighter, more inclusive world for our children. Currently there are 10 Red Trunks in circulation for pilot testing. The goal is to build and fill 20 new Red Trunks for the 2019-2020 school year, and 100 more trunks for the year after that. As Red Trunk Project expands, thousands of trunks, in a dozen languages, containing cultures from a dozen different countries, will be circling the globe. In order to raise funds for the next round of trunks, the organization will host a celebrity fundraising kick-off event, Red Trunk Liftoff. The event will feature wine and finger food, plus an auction run by comedian Richard Kind. And a mystery raffle! Chairs for the event include Joseph Rand, Mike Mohamad, Jon Roskill, and actor/educator Jon Hamm.
