Description

Refugees, immigrants, and their families are invited to contribute handwritten letters about their experiences as a method of alleviating burden and promoting healing. UW visiting artist Trinh Mai will then roll and bind these letters with string, forming a small scroll enclosing and concealing the words. These will be displayed as part of an art exhibit at Seattle's Gould Gallery from April 3 - May 3.

UW Faculty members Linh Nguyen and Jenna Grant will lead the workshop where you can write your story in a supportive, communal space. All are welcome to take part in this collaborative project for empowerment and voice, then view the exhibit. Paper and pencils will be provided.
