Asian American Studies Presents

POC/Indigenous in Contemporary Puppetry/Comic Arts with Chamindika

9/27/17, 12:00 PM

About this event

Visual artist Chamindika will talk about how she and her team are building a community of POC/Indigenous people in contemporary puppetry and comic arts in the Twin Cities, how they're navigating being an arts organizer/artist and working in multiple mediums.​
​This event is part of the Asian American Studies Brown Bag Lunch series. Bring your lunch to the talk and join us in the conversation! Free and open to all. 
Chamindika Wanduragala is a Sri Lankan American visual artist, puppeteer, stop motion animation filmmaker, DJ (DJ Chamun) and the founder and Artistic Director of Monkeybear’s Harmolodic Workshop, an arts nonprofit that nurtures artists of color and Indigenous artists in contemporary puppet theater and sequential art. Her artwork portrays her version of what writer/activist Audre Lorde referred to as biomythography: the intertwining of experience and history with personal mythology.

Hosted by Asian American Studies Program, Immigration History Research Center
