Earlier this year, Asian Impact Society called for artists to submit artwork that reflected on any of the following topics: multiculturalism, diversity and/or anti-racism. Each artist approached their submission in a different way. Some artists chose to depict their personal stories, others expressed their interpretation of these themes, some reflected on the history of these themes in our society, and others aimed to share a message with the viewer.
Our vision is that this exhibition will serve as a vehicle for change by providing space for artists to share their voices and for community members to come together. Our goal is to educate the viewing public on why multiculturalism and diversity are important and why there is no place for racism in our communities. Through this exhibition, we wish to inspire and educate individuals by prompting meaningful discussions and actions that lead toward a more inclusive and just society.
Asian Impact Society is a grassroots, non-partisan not-for-profit organization led by a group of Asian Canadians that live in the Tri-Cities. Through collaborative efforts and open conversations, our vision is to unite allies and supporters to create positive change. Our mission is to share our experiences through stories and art as we raise awareness of Asian racial injustice. Through unity, compassion, empathy and education we work to eliminate discrimination, create space for healing and build inclusive communities by spreading love and kindness.
