2013 Leeway Transformation Award – $15,000

Colette is a photographer, writer, and teacher. She has been making unique pop-up books for over a decade. Drawing upon Chinese paper cutting traditions, she makes work that promotes respect, love, and the beauty in diversity. She teaches art making as a way to give voice to communities of underrepresented groups. Colette has facilitated art-making workshops with the YWCA’s Home-Life Management Center, CFEVA’s Intergenerational Project, Asian Arts Initiative’s Social Practice Lab, and the Mural Arts Program of Philadelphia. She hopes that her artwork and efforts will elevate awareness and help people preserve their unique cultures and way of life—especially those most at risk of being marginalized. Colette hopes that her work expands understanding and changes perceptions of what one “expects” to see of gender, race, and cultural differences.
