The Artists participating in Who Are You? answered the following prompts to share more about their identities and artistic processes.

  1. What is an “identity”, and what advice can you give someone who is discovering their identity?

  2. When has your identity been compromised, and what advice can you give someone whose identity is being challenged?

  3. What actions and/or tools do you use to remind yourself about the value of your unique identity?

  4. How can someone be proud of who they are?
