Event Details

Open House with Artist in Residence with USC Race and Equity Center

Cammilleri Cafe (Dauterive Hall) (VPD)


Bo Daraphant, or “Bo Thai,” is an artivist, an International Studies alumnus of UC Irvine, and an immigrant from Thailand. He works through art, storytelling, and organizing to shatter the myth of the “model minority” AAPI immigrant and to foster healing and resilience among communities affected by immigration enforcement.

Many of the pieces on display are originals from a project called “Bo Thai & Friends”, a card deck featuring a powerful collection of undocumented stories that inspired the artwork by Bo.
