This winter, the Botanical Conservatory invites internationally-known artist Sayaka Ganz to create an imaginative seascape in the midst of our lush Showcase Garden using recycled materials. Discarded everyday items such as plastic forks, knives and bowls are reborn with new purpose and meaning as the artist transforms them into colorful and lifelike sculptures of jellyfish, kelp, dolphins and coral reef. You can practice seeing the possibilities for yourself as you try your hand with “one man’s trash” in our hands-on Discovery Gallery. Let the beauty of this ocean scene inspire you to do more than recycle waste items – consider their value and start upcycling. Sponsored by the Auer Foundation, Arts United, Artlink, City of Fort Wayne Solid Waste, Allen County Solid Waste, and the University of St. Francis School of Creative Arts.

Our Story Project

Your story is an invaluable part of our story!

856 voices create 1 story for Northeast Indiana

The Our Story Project, spearheaded by the Northeast Indiana Regional Partnership, discovered the unified voice for Northeast Indiana. Through consensus-driven workshops in all ten counties and an online version of the workshop, the project focused on defining the human personality of the region and then how to communicate that personality authentically.

Conclusions

  1. The region knows who it is regardless of where you live.
  2. The region knows who it’s not.
  3. The region wants to be bigger, bolder, and more assertive.
  4. Societal change is needed for a lasting legacy.
  5. The region has a compelling cause.
Messaging Platform
With the region’s personality defined, we identified what this “person” talks about. Dozens of key language themes were explored throughout the research and condensed into five master storylines. Together, these storylines create a cohesive messaging platform—infused with the region’s authentic personality—to focus the master narrative.

1. Time-Honored American Strength
As a region, we represent the best of what it truly means to be American. Since 1794, our tenacious drive to succeed is matched only by our unwavering resolve and strength.

2. Spirit of Collaboration
As a region, we know that the contribution of many trumps the success of the individual every time. We value our sense of team and family, creating partnerships and uniting for the common good.

3. Progressive Leadership
The pride and confidence of our region is rooted in our constant determination and creative ability to adapt. As leaders, we move forward despite opposition, to persevere and advance our community.

4. Uphold and Embrace
We endeavor to progress while respecting our heritage. Likewise, we aspire to leave a legacy for future generations, by strengthening our community through a spirit of inclusiveness.

5. Big-Hearted Hospitality
As a region, our friendliness and hospitality are a guiding force for how visitors perceive us. We welcome visitors with an easy-going smile and a welcoming hand.
