Citizens4Community members consider ourselves very fortunate to be working with 2016 Sisters High School graduate Alena Nore, artist for the official poster of the Sisters Country Civility Project. Alena and C4C members have collaborated to develop images that symbolize the Project's civility concepts while simultaneously depicting life in Sisters. The poster is expected to be finalized this month.
Cheerful as it is thoughtful, Alena's illustrations are intended to spark conversations about Sisters values and how those connect with the "9+1" very simple tenets—“or pieces”—of the Civility Project. The 9 tenets are: Pay Attention, Listen, Be Inclusive, Don’t Gossip, Show Respect, Be Agreeable, Apologize, Give Constructive Criticism, and Take Responsibility. The “+1” invites individuals to add a tenet that speaks to them personally or to the core values of any local group with which they are affiliated.
We at C4C are honored by the tremendous passion, artistry and creativity Alena has poured into this effort. During every stage of the poster development process she has displayed an incredibly professional and conscientious attitude. And we could not be happier about the results!…Alena's art captures the optimism that lies at the heart of the Civility Project while truly reflecting the bountiful energy that Sisters inspires. (Thank you, Alena!)
