The “Sock Luck” was our chance to host the En Las Tablas families, a few weeks after they had hosted us. We wanted to give their kids a gift that would allow them to find their own strengths and this became a sock puppet workshop. Each child created a puppet self-portrait, an avatar, using a sock, buttons, yarn and trinkets. We asked the children to take their avatar out into their communities and ask: “What strength do YOU bring to the table?” The puppets have become who the children would like to become when they grow up. The puppets’ hopes for the city are the children’s hopes and dreams becoming tangible, fitting in the palm of their hands.
