There are three ways in which the theme of participation manifests:  1. as symbol or metaphor for full out participation in life - not holding back - as in "Stepping Out" and "Balls to the Wall", 2. as a symbol or metaphor for engaging in life with a sense of play or bringing a quality of playfulness to our participation, and 3. as a participatory event in which many people participate in the creation of the piece, as in "Joy of the Child".  116 children painted "Joy of the Child" on the afternoon of a folk festival at Miller outdoor theater in Houston during the International Year of the Child.   Also check out the Artsweek Community Totem in Syracuse, NY
