The Soul Box Project is…
Counting. Caring. Connecting.
Since 2017 The Soul Box Project has been raising awareness of the U.S. gunfire epidemic by counting and honoring victims in memorial exhibits, offering healing participation to those seeking solace, and providing dramatic visual support for all initiatives working for a safer, more civil society.
Thousands of hand-folded origami Soul Boxes have been made by individuals and groups around the country. Our team assembled them into 365 panels of Boxes to span the width of the National Mall in Washington, D.C., in October 2021. Over 5,000 visitors viewed the This Loss We Carry exhibit. Media reach was over 500 million.
Now, these art-filled panels of Soul Boxes have been adopted by “branches”: organizations and individuals using these effective visuals as a tool to support their efforts to reduce gunfire deaths and injuries. Contact a branch near you to get involved, make Boxes, or borrow the panels for your event.
