One Mile is an art and social justice program which offers transformational, visionary platforms to build positive, vibrant cultures of social difference and human understanding. One Mile’s multi-media, interdisciplinary approach of art as a public practice, offers radical possibilities of critical inquiry, social justice, and cultural change.
One Mile is founded on the simple, enduring principal that if we all walk one mile in each other’s shoes the world would be a vastly better place. Through highly innovative and engaging approaches to art, One Mile invokes compassion, awareness and action across cultures, classes, genders, races, ages, sexualities, religions and nationalities.
Employing rigorous yet playful strategies of art as a public practice, One Mile opens pathways for systemic change in how we treat others and ourselves. Through the vision of Artistic Director and Founder K. Bradford, One Mile guides communities in creating imaginative narratives and structures to build innovative, theory-action driven solutions to incite local and global sustainability in our world.
