This group is designed to support a sense of community building and collective healing among high school and college-aged Asians/Asian Americans living in America right now. The use of activities in the expressive arts will be used to explore a range of ways to express and share these experiences, (i.e. art collage, dramatic activities, movement, music, and creative writing). Community-building exercises will be used to foster a sense of being heard, seen, and not alone. This is an 8-week workshop.
Topics explored throughout the session include:
- unique lived experiences as Asian/Asian-Americans in America
- identity and intersectionality
- celebration of being Asian American & highlighting the joys
- community/lack of community
- discrimination/racism/model minority
- other explorations brought to this space by you, the participants
