Sound > Silence: Overcoming Stigmas Around Mental Health Through the Power of Sound
Location: East Portland
Collaborators: Michelle Fujii, Toru Watanabe, and Joe Kye
Unit Souzou Co-Directors, Michelle Fujii and Toru Watanabe joined violinist-looper Joe Kye to present a workshop using sound to combat the silence around mental health in API communities. Workshop participants explored their personal relationships with mental health, investigated stigmas about mental wellness in API communities, and created soundscapes through looping and drumming in order to overcome the negative perceptions around such conversations. No musical background was necessary!
