What is your KITE STORY?

We are gathering kite stories from around the globe! This is an ongoing project designed to highlight the universal appeal of kites. Almost all of us have flown or made a kite at some point in our lives. These experiences connect us across all perceived boundaries: geography, culture, gender, age, and political persuasion.

Send us your kite story and contribute to an archive of personal connections to kite making and flying. Simply fill out the form below and press submit when you are done. Joining our mailing list is optional, will we never distribute your contact information or spam you with communications you did not request.

If you are in San Antonio, RSVP for a Building Session on September 13th at Artpace and build a story kite with us!

Start your story with one of the following, or start with your own opening sentence.

  • The first time I made a kite...
  • The first time I flew a kite...
  • The last time I made a kite...
  • The last time I flew a kite...
