In her work Han Sifuentes confronts social and racial injustices against the disenfranchised and riffs off of official institutions and bureaucratic processes to reimagine new, inclusive, and humanized systems of civic engagement and belonging. Doing this by creating participatory and active environments where safety, play, and skill-sharing are emphasized. Even though many of her projects are collaborative and communal in nature, they incite and highlight individual’s experiences, politics, and voice.
