The six month fellowship provides rare experiences of deepening understanding, awareness and greater solidarity amongst our communities through leadership development, arts-based organizing, and field trips. These field trips include transformative and immersive experiences into community, including visits to the Manzanar Historic Incarceration Site, a SoCal masjid/mosque, the Japanese American Cultural and Community Center’s Aratani Theatre for a special viewing of PULLproject Ensemble’s theatre piece called “Tales of Clamor”, and much more.
Fellows gain access to facilitation, training, and mentorship from long-time/experienced leaders and artists from the Muslim and Japanese American communities.
