‘Tunnel of Intersections’ focuses on oppressed in our communities

EdCC Intersections

“Tunnel of Intersections,” which focuses on expressing the oppression of marginalized groups in our communities, will be on exhibition at Edmonds Community College next week. The event is free and open to the public.

The exhibit features an interactive experience examining an array of intersections that various segments of our community encounter on a daily basis. Each of the vignettes in the “Tunnel of Intersections” is the exclusive creative brainchild of Edmonds CC student groups.

Organizers hope this exhibit will spark healthy and vigorous discussion among participants and ultimately will lead to a deeper understanding and appreciation of how various members of our community cope with the intersections that are an integral part of their identities.

This exhibit is fashioned after the nationally-recognized “Tunnel of Oppression,” which was first created as a campus grassroots diversity program at Western Illinois University, and can now be found at many colleges and universities around the nation.

Locally, Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma has presented its version of this exhibit for several years now. Inspiration from the Museum of Tolerance in Los Angeles was used as a template for the first “Tunnel of Oppression”.
