TweetHaus

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

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, with Park Day School as its locus.

TweetHausOAK engaged 3rd grade students at Park Day in collaborative, project-based learning. Under the mentorship of FLUX artists, Park Day teachers and community professionals, an 8-week curriculum guided five teams of 3-4 students in the design, construction and installation of an urban Western Bluebird habitat. The program began with students and mentors collaborating in the classroom to learn about bluebird habitat and ecology. The teams put knowledge into practice by venturing into the neighborhood to find appropriate birdhouse locations. They then returned to the classroom and the school’s garden to design and construct a unique birdhouse and bluebird-supportive garden for installation at each specific location. The kids’ excitement about the program is uncontainable! Take a look at our photos on Flickr to see for yourself! Two birdhouses have been installed at Mosswood Park in Oakland, one at a neighborhood home and two at Park Day School.

It is our aim to have a shareable curriculum by Fall 2012 that anyone can use in any location to build bird houses for the Western Bluebird!
