Multi Families Project

The Multi-Families Project, mixed media, 2016

The Multi-Families Project is a participatory visual arts and photography project that showcased the diversity of unique family cultures in the East Bay region of Northern California. I started this project for deeply personal reasons: my own family is bi-racial and cross-cultural. I wanted to offer families like mine the opportunity to share the symbols, objects, and rituals that represent their household’s unique culture, to make that culture visible and to have it be celebrated by the broader community.
