9.25.2020 “comfort women” advocacy workshop: the art of witnessing with dr. elizabeth son
Join us on September 25th at 7pm for a workshop with Dr. Elizabeth Son on "comfort women" advocacy and the Art of Witnessing.
This workshop will focus on the role of art in advocacy for gender justice, specifically the importance of the Sonyeosang “Peace Statue” and the #ComeSitWithHer performances to the “comfort women” social movement. Dr. Son will discuss how Korean, Japanese, and Korean American artists and supporters have utilized these memory-based artistic means to create circles of witnessing and care while expanding notions of redress.
