Creating Characters and Stories with Ethnic Dysphoria

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The talk discusses growing up as an adoptee into an ethnically different family and the effect it had and has on a visual artist who is a person of colour growing up in a white household. I'll also be covering the stigma of adoption.
