Over the past six months, more than 150 community members have participated in the Leavings/Belongings project with Yu-Wen Wu, artist-in-residence at the Pao Arts Center.

Participants created symbolic cloth-wrapped bundles while sharing stories about their own and their family’s immigration journeys. These bundles represent what is left behind and what may be carried in migration – survival, hope and dreams. Collected throughout Wu's residency, the exhibition

Leavings/Belongings at Pao includes photographs, video, and a site specific sculptural installation of the bundles. Through the act of making together, participants share their narratives of migration, generating dialogue that bridge across experience, generations, and ethnicity.
