Mapping Home: Land/Water/Place
A collaborative art exhibit exploring personal and cultural stories of home and migration.
Created from a series of intergenerational workshops aimed at facilitating cultural preservation of local refugee communities through the artistic explorations of land, water and navigation to new resettlement locations. The project is facilitated by Lynn Susholtz in collaboration with the Karen Organization of San Diego, UCSD Education Studies Department Partners at Learning Program. The project explores symbols and concepts of home and place, bringing together seniors and teen youth from several local refugee communities to work with local artists. The immersive art installation in the Art Produce Gallery tells a collective story of migration. This program is made possible thanks to the University of California, Critical Refugee Studies Collective.
Art Produce invites intergenerational groups from varying ethnic backgrounds to participate in workshops designed to create art for the purposes of cultural preservation and transmission. This project is suggested for 12 yrs and older. We ask that you can commit to attending all of the workshops.
