FACE THE RACE By GACCE
This proposed project is the initial step to attain an integrated overarching project that focuses on the different levels of cultural integration through the arts.
It will focus on developing cultural identity through masks making. The general objective of this masks making is to foster awareness, knowledge and respect of the different cultural heritage through the arts. This project is designed to assist the participants in their understanding and appreciation for other cultures through mask making exploring connections between cultures and societies; demonstrating personal expression and original concepts of varied cultures and recognizing the existence of similarities and differences that ultimately can lead to cultural integration.
Face the Race masks making will provide lectures, workshops in intercultural interactions, photo essays, an art exhibit, and a journal.
The outcome of this project will convey a message that is expected to show and tell its meanings in an art exhibition as the participants become aware of the social purpose and significance of each culture in cultural integration.
As an assessment, the finished products, its stories and its creators will be documented and will be shared to the community as a living legacy of multicultural experience.
This project is a community capacity building on a continuing basis and will involve different communities and participants in multiple venues. To fulfill this worthwhile project, it will need to raise funding of $10,000.
