“Unlearning is not about forgetting. It’s about our ability to choose an alternative to our preset paradigms. As we grow and learn, we’ve taken on the thoughts and culture of our surroundings and authority figures in our lives. If these thoughts are of a destructive nature, then they become the basis for unhealthy values and beliefs. Unlearning is a skill to practice daily and a lifetime journey of self discovery. Using art to approach this, we hope to identify harmful traits and replace them with beliefs founded in knowledge and understanding rather than ignorance.” ……. Fatima Mohammad
We are excited to share new innovations of artist programming, community engagement and social good.
