The Green Mask workshop seeks to challenge how we perceive Asian Americans in relation to space and environment; to offers a diverse perspective of what it means to be an Asian American in America today through the examination of identity, culture and space. Students in the workshop will have the opportunity to work closely with the artist, Eriko Tsogo. Using recycled materials, masks will be created by students and displayed in the APACC office for an extended period of time.
An art exhibition night and mixer will occur on April 7 and students will have the opportunity to share the meanings of their mask with the community.
There is a limit of 12 students that will be able to participate during the workshop due to the limit in resources. APIDA-identifying students are preferred for this project. If you are unable to attend the workshop, please email An-Ping at email@example.com so that another student can be notified of the spot opening.
Time: Tuesday, April 5, 2022 3pm-6pm
Location: LSC North Ballroom
Refreshments will be provided during the workshop
