SOLIDARITY STREET GALLERY 2022, the third edition of the community-centered arts and cultural festival.
The aim is to bring together artists and the community for important exchanges about justice, equity, and resilience – and to celebrate all the diverse groups who call the Eastside of St. Paul their home.
The focus this year is on RESILIENT GENERATIONS, centered around Southeast Asian communities – and other displaced groups. Visual artists, performers, poets, storytellers, and community leaders – most of them Southeast Asian – will reflect on the immigrant experiences of being forced from a homeland, often in traumatic circumstances; rebuilding lives in a new diaspora home; and establishing a new identity while revitalizing culture, language, and history across generations. Celebrating Southeast Asian people is especially important with the rise of anti-Asian violence and the need for #StopAsianHate.
SOLIDARITY STREET GALLERY is a family-friendly event open to all:
* Invite your family and friends
* Explore the high-quality art exhibitions
* Enjoy and learn from the community activities
* Witness the stories and talent of the performers
* Shop and dine at the Southeast Asian Street Market
* Gather in solidarity, strength and resilience
