Belonging is an Albuquerque, NM-based, community-engagement and participatory project, by Christine Wong Yap, brought to you by artist-in-residence
There are three components:
- Thirteen hand-painted signs commemorating places of belonging installed at sites in Albuquerque. In addition, custom activity sheets will freely be available in wooden boxes at five sites.
- Zine featuring maps of the signs, and excerpts of the contributed stories.
The goal of Belonging is to reveal the pivotal experiences that shape one’s sense of belonging and connectedness to a place and country, and how it ultimately defines our authentic selves; and to say, We All Belong Here.
