ArtPrize 10 Winners Bring THE STRING PROJECT To Your Community 


Encouraging cultural awareness, understanding, and unity through the common thread of art, conversation, and compassion.


People of all ages will be engaged while Chelsea and Mariano take them on an interactive self-reflection process, helping them understand their full potential and opening their minds as they dream of their future. The presentation highlights some of the most valuable things in life: respect, hope, peace, compassion, love, empathy, integrity. The couple is grateful for the support of ArtPrize 10 and the communities they have visited and would love nothing more than to share their message with eager minds. At the end of the presentation, guests will walk away with a sense of purpose and motivation to respect their community, family, friends, and other cultures. They will also be given a string bracelet reminding them of the promise they made to themselves at the beginning of the presentation. 

Chelsea Nix and her Argentinian husband, Mariano Cortez, a relatable young couple, bring to life their inspiring story while helping to spread kindness to your community. Their presentation takes guests and visitors on an incredible journey explaining how their project came to life. The 45 minute event includes an amazing video that captures the couple’s adventure to over 20 countries where they photographed and discovered new cultures and lifestyles. They hope to teach people about cultural awareness so they can experience how we are all connected despite our differences, highlighting our similarities.
