Maria Möller (ACG ’11) and Jebney Lewis will be exhibiting The Kensington Riots Project, created in collaboration with Arab American youth about the conflicts and challenges of immigration in America today. June 2 and 3 from 12:00pm – 6:00pm at the Cranes Arts Old School Building.
Through a partnership with the Arab American Community Development Corporation, they have gathered together an amazing group of Arab American youth. They are now in the middle of a series of Saturday workshops, using theatre, photography, writing, installation and sculpture to create site-based art.
At the start of the workshops, none of the kids would have called themselves artists or history buffs. They may be changing their minds. They have certainly inspired me with the way the artists’ have embraced the creation of unusual art and have delved into the parallels between the past and the present.
If you’d like to see what we’ve been up to, take a look at the project blog:
