1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'Surviving Genocide' immerses the reader in the stories of two Rwandans who as small children experienced the 1994 Genocide; it tells of the horrific tragedy each survived, the courage necessary for surviving, and the humanity they embody. Those stories are framed by two chapters chronicling and inspired by the transformation in Rugerero of a concrete burial slab into a powerful Genocide Memorial with its bone chamber, designed by Lily Yeh. An essential theme of the book is the importance of the dead for the living, of honoring the dead, of remembrance...The material in the book stems from Lily Yeh’s multifaceted Rwandan Healing Project under the auspices of Barefoot Artists. Susan Viguers conceived and designed the book, incorporating drawings and paintings by Lily Yeh. This book was made possible by a Rockefeller Foundation Bellagio Arts Residency"--Synopsis from Shandy Press

The Village of Arts and Humanities Project, Phila., PA( Book )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The Village of Arts and Humanities Project, a collaboration of artists, builders, educators, and neighborhood members, has several disparate thematic underpinnings. The provisioning of opportunities for: housing, self-sufficiency (economic and personal), and artisitc and cultural growth as well as the overarching notion of community creation, empowerment and improvement through art and education. Located in North Philadelphia, a neighborhood of extreme social and physical disarray, the Village under the aegis of neighborhood residents has undertaken several constructive projects involving the creation of viable public spaces: parks, community gardens, and buildings. Artisitic/creative endeavors and plans include: dramatic productions, seasonal fesitivals, and issuing a literary magazine, no small accomplishment given the preceeding lack of opportunities for artistic exposure and development dominant in the lives of so many neighborhood residents
Village of Arts and Humanities( Book )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The private nonprofit community based Village of Arts and Humanities Project in economically challenged North Philadelphia has led an effort for urban renewal in the city. In 1986, artist Lily Yeh began this project as a way to involve the resident youth in design and construction of neighborhood parks. It has mushroomed into an effort to combine the postitive psychological aspects of art, public green space and architecture to revitalize the community and the youth. The Village hosts exhibitions, dramatic productions and community festivals in order to incorporate the neighborhood into the goals of the organization. Thus far, the group can count as successes the transformation of areas of blight into areas of communal interaction and artistic expression
