Holiday season can be difficult. Those conversations at the family gathering dinners can stir up lots of feelings. After all the yummy food and gifts and wishes, it is time to sit down and find a way to feel better and move on.
We kick off the new decade with a new community dialogue featuring artist, Jaime Sunwoo, again at Chinatown Soup on Thursday, January 30th, 2020. In this workshop, you will:
- Hear Jaime Sunwoo, a working artist, talk about how she transformed her family history of trauma into a powerful creative force in her artistic endeavours;
- Understand how trauma can be transmitted across generations through biological, psychological, familial and societal methods
- Engage in dialogues and activities to reflect how you are impacted by the intergenerational trauma and to facilitate personal and professional growth
Join us if you are:
- a creative who is looking to find their unique identity and artistic presence
- an advocate, social workers, clinicians, and community organizers who is looking to deepen their understanding of the transmissions of trauma
- someone who feels stuck with their family dynamic and are looking to break free
RSVP here with Chinatown Soup.

Her work has been seen at JACK, Abrons Art Center, BAX, The Tank, Flux Factory, Open Source Gallery, DUMBO Arts Festival, and Art in Odd Places.
