We’re partnering with the Wing Luke Museum to offer a free, hands-on zine-making workshop for high school students on Sunday, July 10. Using the radical Asian American newsletter Gidra — and its mission statement, “Truth is not always pretty, not in this world” — as our guiding force, we’ll dive into the history of the Asian American movement and create artwork to reflect on the power of art, activism, and solidarity. Students will learn about Sound Transit’s planned light rail expansion and the threats it poses to Seattle’s Chinatown-International District, as well as some anti-displacement organizing history and how to put those lessons into action today.
Youth in King County are invited to join us at Densho’s Seattle office on July 10 for a free lunch at 11am followed by a two-hour workshop from 12-2pm. The workshop will be outdoors (weather permitting) or indoors in a well-ventilated space, and masks are required.
Participants who verify proof of vaccination can receive a $150 stipend for their participation. This workshop is funded, in part, by 4Culture and Seattle Office of Arts & Culture.
