Grammar Book of Care
In collaboration with cartoonist and writer Yao Xiao, CAO hosted a workshop and performance with community members about our experiences and relationships with comics, meditated together, and practiced expressing “care” visually. Each card is written and drawn by multiple people who responded to each other, so that every card ends up with a word/phrase and a drawing on what care means to our community. It slowly unfolded into a vibrant visual dictionary as we continued writing, drawing, reading, watching and reflecting. This project is ongoing, and a burgeoning dictionary of care offers us valuable resources to continue exploring collective narrativizing in the community.
