From Margin To Center: Art & Activism, Thurs., April 13

Art & Activism, PUB 9208: Thurs., April 13 – 9:30-11 a.m.

Mintwab Zemeadim is an Ethiopian artist living in Seattle. Using photography, filmmaking, and collage as mediums, her art serves as a platform for her to celebrate, challenge reality, and transcend the concept of time and space. Sankofa (to go back and get it), an Akan term coined in Ghana, is a theme explored in her visuals. It is exemplified in the creation of alternative universes and the use of the past to inform the future. Preserving her culture is essential to her art, which is rooted in her identity as a Black/African/Ethiopian woman.

In this hands-on workshop, Zemeadim will explore her work and artistic process. Participants will have the opportunity to engage their imagination and create their own collages.
