An Indiana group wants to boost dialogue and state appreciation among Hoosiers.

Indianapolis-based Theater of Inclusion has launched a project called, “Indy Loves You.”

The project involves dozens of red, folding chairs that the group sets up in places across the city.

Project Manager Rebecca King says they got the idea to kick off the project on Monument Circle.

She says the effort allows people to be “tourists in their own city” and it creates hospitality for people who live and work in Indiana every day.

King says there are no strings attached or commitments required and sitting in the chairs costs nothing.  King says they‘re trying to figure out how folks respond to the effort and they‘ll create more community-engaging projects.
