Session 2: Houssam Alloum & Virginia Jahyu
Art is a powerful tool. Use it to express yourself or to share a message calling for change. This session will feature local artist, Houssam Alloum, who was a recent recipient of the Kingston Prize for his painting, “Joyce.” Houssam will reflect on how art has been a part of his journey as a refugee. Following Houssam’s talk, art instructor, Virginia Jahyu will help audience members create an art piece that they can use to explore and share expressions of social justice.
There is no cost to the session, but we encourage attendees to donate to an organization that supports refugees.
