TOSS has been producing hunts since 2014! We have worked with communities in NC, SC, Maryland, Alabama, and California. Our most recent hunt was the Catawba Scavenger Hunt, August 10th, 2019.
TOSShunts are a series of creative, curated events. These art scavenger hunts are designed by artists, students, and the TOSS staff to fit a specific community and theme. They are designed to spark curiosity and provoking wonder though an interactive adventure, accessible to all.
This project is a social enterprise of TOSS studio. As we seek to harness the power of creativity to change the lives of those in the Rural South, we use creative entrepreneurship to fund this vision. Proceeds from these events benefit our studio art programing.
We believe creative experiences in public space are worth creating, maintaining, and sustaining. Our interest in exploring alternative forms of presentation in the arts began in 2014, with the recognition that participation in museum and galleries was steadily on the decline. With technologies ushering in a new era of media production and viewership, physical, kinesthetic experiences for many have been diminished.
Catawba Scavenger Hunt
🌿The Catawba Scavenger Hunt supported
Efforts of the Foothills Conservancy of North Carolina and Catawba Riverkeepers Foundation to promote environmental stewardship through this artful experience.
👩🎨These events fund our art education initiative at TOSS!
With 5,500 elementary students in Burke County and only 2 art teachers across these 14 schools, the need for arts education in this region is clear.
