Just City-Just Land

Asian Refugees United (ARU) in collaborations with Center for Empowering Refugees and Immigrants (CERI) and Puri Arts present, “Just City- Just Land: Connect, Reflect, Enact." This program will be facilitated by Dohee Lee, ARU’s Art and Healing Director and Founding Director of PURI Arts.

A multi-part project integrating body knowledge and art creation to hold space for deep reflection on wounds both suffered and inflicted through systemic oppression existing in Oakland’s Asian communities here and the homeland. Through 6 sessions, developed and facilitated by Dohee Lee, an artistic director, cultural practitioner, performer, ritualist, and educator, participants will engage in art practices that connect and explore the body as land, a site of deep holding and transformation. Along with reflection, dialogue and learning from local farmers and Indigenous and Black leaders, this project will culminate in a community land ritual with a goal of building community power and unity.
