During this project, we will be exploring the myriad of experiences that immigrant communities have gone through that have affected our mental health and healing and present our visions into reality. Participants will learn from and work with Julio Salgado for one year in monthly art workshops to explore, experiment, and create art pieces illustrating their many intersecting identities to showcase in at least one of two pop-art events. Participants will also design and lead at least one panel with Julio Salgado and other community members to evaluate their creative and healing process.
Art workshops with Julio Salgado and art making parties will be held on the same evening from 5:30 PM to 8 PM.
The dates for Part 1 of the project dates will be as follow and they will be held at the Advancing Justice - Asian Law Caucus office in San Francisco:
