A Place of Her Own (APOHO), is multidisciplinary arts-based healing project that asks women, “If you had a place of your own, what would it be?”  Founded in 2010 and directed by surrealist artist Cynthia Tom, APOHO seeks to spotlight issues facing Asian American women while developing an artistic forum to heal, transform and inform. The conceptual framework and long term goal of this project is to generate a creative place for women to reconnect with themselves and make their aspirations and passions visible.

During its newest exhibition, audiences will be given the opportunity to harness their inner wisdom and personal strengths through both hands-on and self-guided art-making. This project offers a developing, thoughtful community for discussion and query, and acts as a vehicle for the participants to focus solely on themselves. Declarations and revelations of discovery are in store for both artists and visitors alike.

The exhibition runs from May 19 – June 31 at the historic I-Hotel Manilatown Center, with special events running throughout.
