TweetHaus is a Go!

FLUX is celebrating the start of a new collaboration! Today we begin TweetHausOAK a collaboration with Park Day School in Oakland.

The first pilot program of TweetHaus

TweetHaus is the fifth project for FLUX. It is a public art + ecology project focused on citizen science and interactive learning. It fosters community through the design, construction and installation of bird habitats and public pathways in urban environments.

TweetHaus expresses itself on multiple scales,

using the platform of birdhouses to create an ecologically-oriented place-making experience. The project honors the interconnection of human communities and the natural world and builds an expanding network of birdhouses, pathways, public artists and citizen scientists. Grounded in our belief that art builds community and that community can build art, the first installment of TweetHaus takes place in our own backyard—Oakland, CA, starting in March 2012.

Oakland is our pilot program, TweetHausOAK. it focus on the Western Bluebird, which is threatened in urban areas. Under the mentorship of FLUX artists, teams of elementary school students design, construct, install and monitor urban Western Bluebird habitats (including gardens and pathways) throughout their neighborhoods using community-sourced and recycled materials. After installation, the project is then expanded by FLUX hosted community walks and bike ride, local events, and then expanded out to the world via social media and an interactive website.

    I think TweetHaus is a great project. I don’t have building skills but I’d like to learn and possibly volunteer when possible.

      We need some Flux “stewards” to visit Mosswood Park every week (choose a week here and there, don’t have to do all of them) until July! Great place to bring your dog, play some frisbee, and tweet (or blog, FB, etc.) about the designer nestboxes the mini-makers installed. Interested?

        I will totally do this!!! I live right near there.
        Where are the nest boxes?
        any specific things you want blogged or tweeted about? just about the project in general and observations from the day I visit?
        This is such a cool project!

        • Jess says:

          Thank you. Please email tweethaus@fluxfoundation.org and we will get you set up as a nestbox “Steward. They were just installed today we will be posting a map soon.
          And, yes, please blog about it; your observations, general thoughts, and how it is improving your neighborhood.

    *Oakland City Parks and Recreation is a go!*
    We have been approved to work with them and their resident Naturalist, Stephanie Benavidez, to do this local program at their public parks throughout East Bay. Ta-weeet!

    Stay tuned for news and upcoming happenings for this summer.
