Lunchbox moments are the formative occurrences in many Asian American kids' lives where a traditional Asian meal is eaten at school and peers in the lunchroom have some reaction, whether it be positive or negative. I have a lunchbox moment; my mom has a lunchbox moment; nearly all of my AAPI peers have a lunchbox moment. These stories make up a collective identity that is equal parts profound, beautiful, comical, and heartbreaking. In order to share these stories and empower the AAPI community in light of recent attacks on Asian Americans in the U.S., I will be creating the art installation: Lunchbox Moments: Seek Understanding. Share Stories. Stop Hate. I have been collecting narratives from members of the AAPI community and physically writing their stories onto spray-painted lunch boxes. This visual representation of storytelling showcases the Asian-American experience. It empowers marginalized voices by providing a platform to raise awareness and eliminate hate in the AAPI community. Get involved by sharing your story or registering for a workshop where you can create your own work of art and contribute to the exhibition (no experience necessary).
