Resilience Through Art: How SEAs Have Mobilized, Healed, and Resisted Through Creative Modes of Self-Expression
GC 265, 4:00 - 5:20
Art is storytelling. Art is healing. Art is resilience. Art is preserving. Join Dianne LíÈ to learn about the potential for art to be a powerful tool for social change. This workshop explores how youth have mobilized and advocated through breakdancing, spoken word, and other forms of artistic expression. Learn how to bridge communicative, generational, and cultural gaps within Southeast Asian communities to cultivate new means of healing, resistance, and advocacy.
