The Fuller Dome Transformation Initiative
…will take place from April 18th to April 22nd and needs your participation! The success of an event often depends on the strength and help of the community that supports it. This is no exception! Volunteers are needed for all aspects of the Initiative. Do you have time, talents, services, materials, artifacts or even stories and experiences that you’d like to share? This is the perfect opportunity! No contribution is too small!
Often called the “father of sustainability,” the impact and legacy of R. Buckminster Fuller’s work is celebrated internationally. By volunteering, participating or sponsoring the Fuller Dome Transformation Initiative you help manifest a needed event focused on positive transformation for Carbondale, Illinois and the Southern Illinois region.
We have an impressive list of guests that will be taking part in the festivities, including Allegra Fuller Snyder, Bucky’s daughter. Join us in celebrating one of Carbondale’s most adulated and honored citizens and the anniversary of the only geodesic dome he and his wife Anne called home.
Celebrating the 50th anniversary of a Carbondale treasure is most certainly a community event and your willingness to contribute will make all the difference!
