The first few workshops set us all up for the last workshop. In the last workshop the group was given a large sheet of paper, makers, paints, and the task of creating our own version of the little tokyo mural that is located on the corner of central and 1st street. Each person contributed a different part to our beautiful mural. When the mural was first taking shape, it just looked like a whole bunch of random drawings, however towards the end of the workshop you could see how all the different drawings contributed something unique to the mural. I found that this session was a lot of fun.
This session also had a lot of "substance" as well. I learned a lot more about who i am, and what my community means for me. I also learned that i have as small as i may seem, i can cause ripples and make a difference in my community. As a part of our community each of us can shape the future of our community. The thing that i received from this session is that, our unique identity plays an essential role in the bigger picture of our community. And like a small stone hitting a big lake, i can cause change, we as a group can cause change, and better the future of our little tokyo.
Can't wait till next tuesday.
