Sandy Sohcot explains more about Reclaiming Dignity:
This series of events came about after meeting artist Virginia Jourdan this past summer, thanks to Rashida Chase, an alum of TWAICB Institute and Ellen Sebastian Chang, TWAICB’s Creative Director, showing me a post of Virginia’s painting Dignity. Virginia was inspired to paint Dignity when she learned about the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), as part of her Internet search to find initiatives focused on helping others. In honor of the 70th anniversary of the UDHR, Virginia decided to do another 30 paintings connected with the 30 Articles of the UDHR. We will be showcasing these paintings at her San Francisco studio. In addition to the painting exhibit, each event will have its own featured interactive discussion, art activity or performance to spark camaraderie, as well as ideas and actions for positive change. We welcome all ages, encouraging attendance of families, as well as teachers and students.
