Immigrants Are US: The (G)eneration Project A Virtual Workshop 2020
August 22 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pmFree
The G Project is a public art campaign – a simple idea that we are all immigrants and our common threads are bigger than our differences. The G Project hopes that if we can all see each other by the number of generations (G) we have been in this country, then our similarities will far outweigh our differences, and we can begin to consider each other as equal.
This interactive virtual event is part of a national public art campaign by WHDC grantee, the Harlem Arts Foundation and immigrant artist Harlem resident Edward Hillel. Participants will engage in a dialogue to determine and record their (G) status. The G project hopes to build and expand a conversation between Americans from all walks of life, in order to begin to recognize ourselves in each other and each other in ourselves: we are ALL immigrants.
