Embracing Intersectional Diversity Launch Party
I have the pleasure and privilege of being part of this amazing project, and I encourage you all to come out and have your senses disrupted at the launch party, tomorrow night!
Tomee Sojourner’s Embracing Intersectional Diversity Project explores living expressions of intersecting identities through the visual ‘essence’ of marginalized workers, activists, students, and community members. The EID Project aims to open spaces for critical intervention/disruption and dialogue around what we ‘see’ and understand about intersectional identities, and the underlying assumptions that surface in our multicultural framework where difference is acknowledged, and mainstream representations of diversity still compartmentalize people into immutable ethno-cultural identities.
