InterACT! The Art of Creating Together

InterACT! The Art of Creating Together

January 13–February 5, 2023

What does the art of creating together mean to you?

InterACT! The Art of Creating Together is a month-long collection of collaborative experiences, gatherings and art making. Through intentional interactions, we are coming together after years of social distancing, quarantining and isolation caused by the pandemic. 

InterACT! The Art of Creating Together is a series of workshops and conversations that encourage us to not just observe, but interact. Not just be a bystander, but an active participant. 

InterACT! The Art of Creating Together features a performance and book talk by national performing artists Nobuko Miyamoto and traci-kato-kiriyama, who bring their talents, passions for social justice, and storytelling to us in an evening performance on January 21.

Join us for these January events and together we will collectively build a community art exhibition at the Japanese American Museum of Oregon:
