Hmoob Artmaking

  • In Progress 213 Front Avenue Saint Paul, MN, 55117 United States (map)

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.

Our first artmaking workshop begins

SATURDAY, October 14, 2017

11AM - 2PM

SNACKS WILL BE PROVIDED

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. All ages are welcome and encouraged, families however they identify are welcome. Artwork created during this experience will be share publicly with the hope of igniting conversations throughout the Hmong Community.

No experience is required to participate, there is no cost, and artists will be on hand to walk you and your families through each and every step. And when your register - please add tickets for all the members of your family you plan to bring.

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.
