Our Layers of Identity is a collaboration between Washtenaw Community College and First Fridays Ypsilanti intended to increase community engagement with the arts as a means to improve well-being and interpersonal connection in response to the Covid-19 pandemic. Many thanks to WCC administration, First Fridays Ypsilanti, and all participating businesses for their support of this special project!
