- Everyone & every part of the community can participate in creating a temporary sculpture celebrating the combined hopes & dreams of Kingsport
- Individuals, families, organizations, schools, churches, & businesses are invited to lend ladders (symbols of their hopes and dreams) to be joined together in a monumental sculpture towering in front of the Renaissance Center, spilling across its lawn to Center St.
- the ladders can be as ordinary or as creative or expressive, with their ladders as they want to be.
- Each ladder will be registered, tagged to identify the lender & they will be added to the "List of Ladder Lenders" that will appear on the project website & Facebook page & the list will be posted at the sculpture site.
