M.I.S.C presents…The Identity ProjectPosted: November 20, 2011
The Identity Project is a photo project and exhibition loosely based off of Kip Fulbeck’s “Hapa Project,” in which he traveled around the country photographing Americans of mixed Asian descent and asked them to define WHO they are in their own words. This moving photography project
provided a space for individuals who might otherwise be “boxed in” by racial and ethnic categories to challenge those same categories and vocalize what their identity means to them.
This is our second annual presentation of the Identity Project! In our version, Multiethnic Interracial Smith College (MISC) has extended this project to ALL members of the Smith community, and hopes that the Identity Project will be an annual forum for students, faculty and staff to self-identify and critically think about what IDENTITY means.
If you’re interested in becoming involved or participating in the
Identity Project next year, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. We encourage
people from all racial, ethnic and cultural backgrounds to participate.
when: November 20-December 3
where: Nolen Art Lounge, Smith College Campus Center
