Art Action Day – Youth Workshop
20 S W Temple
Salt Lake City, UT 84101
Express yourself loud and proud with an art project that breaks boundaries! The artists of Al Ahad will share personal stories about using art to dispel stereotypes through The Hijab Project. Workshop participants will then express their own uniqueness and explore the borders of language by using markers, scissors, glue and more to creatively alter a label or stereotype.
The Hijab Project is on view at UMOCA until January 27.
About the Artists: Al Ahad is an Arabic word meaning indivisible and is used to describe God. It also serves as an acronym for Always Love Against Hate And Discrimination, a local organization working to change public perceptions of Islam. The members of Al Ahad believe that love, unity and community action are society’s strongest tools against hate and systemic racism.
