ABOUT THE PROJECT
Julie Lin, Art on Purpose’s Resident Community Artist, who also conceived the project, implemented a series of workshops at local social service organizations working with adult refugees, immigrants and asylum seekers in the Baltimore community. During each three-hour workshop, clients of Advocates for Survivors of Torture and Trauma (ASTT) and other organizations serving immigrants, refugees and asylum seekers, including the International Rescue Committee, Adelante Familia and Baltimore City Community College’s Refugee Assistance Program, engaged in a variety of cooking and collage workshops and events.

During each session, participants discussed cooking, eating and family, exploring issues of identity and assimilation. They traded stories of their lives, shared recipes from their native countries and created art works to illustrate their experiences.
