Join Pao Arts Center Artist-in-Residence, Yu-Wen Wu, in the Leavings/Belongings project and gather together to create while sharing stories of your families' and your own immigration experiences!
Inspired by the tradition of storytelling while making, the bundle-making project engages various immigrant and refugee communities in the making of symbolic “bundles.” Through the act of making together, participants can share stories. These anomalously shaped cloth wrapped bundles may represent what is left behind, and what may be carried in migration – survival, hope, dreams. Throughout these sessions, these bundles will be exhibited collectively in public spaces to generate conversation, dialogue, and bridges across experiences, generations, and ethnicity. The bundles will contribute to the project Leavings/Belongings.
Materials are provided. Feel free to contribute to the project by bringing fabric meaningful to your personal or your family's journey.
