HMOOB / HMONG

Please join us for Hmoob - a series of conversations and artmaking experiences about how to begin to identify who you are and where you want to be as Hmong. 

We are currently seeking 6-8 families to participate in 4 of these conversations between September and December, and from this grouping we hope to identify up to fifteen people to participate in creating artistic works that further the ideas presented.

ARTMAKING
SATURDAYS
11AM - 2PM
10/7 ,10/14,11/11
Each participating family will identify 2 to 3 people to create digital artwork  Parents may choose to work with their children, siblings may pair up, or cousins and grandparents may choose to contribute.  The goal is to create a body of artwork - photos, video and music that publicly acknowledge the Hmong.

Three formal sessions will take place with professional artists providing their expertise and guidance.  Participants will learn how to take their ideas into an artistic form and they will develop creative working relationships with those they share a common experience with.  As projects develop, individualized sessions will be scheduled where families can receive specialized support and their ideas to a completed product.  

Sessions Take Place at In Progress on the following dates:
October 7
October 14
November 11
