2008 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

Shuyuan will promote women's empowerment in contemporary Chinese history by asserting the importance of female artists in traditional Chinese Opera. In the past, women were excluded from many social activities and careers, including opera. As a female Chinese opera artist, Shuyuan benefited from her mother's sharing of her professional experiences obtained through social changes. In North America, many do not know about Chinese opera's early gender-exclusion. Her goal is to acknowledge this historical fact and engage more female artists and audiences in enhancing her art.
