Aletheia Hyun-Jin Shin is a Korean community artist. Her life experience growing up as a third culture kid, born in Canada, and raised in US and Korea, informs her interest in transnational, inter-cultural, and social practice art. Recently completing her Master in Fine Arts degree in Community Arts from Maryland Institute College of Arts, she continues to practice incorporating the methodology of community organizing and storytelling in her artistic praxis, focusing on building local leadership through creative platforms that promote solidarity and community voices. Collaborating as an artistic asset in various Korean communities, Aletheia seeks to facilitate the creation of artistic narrative projects as a vehicle to nurture culture, build community, and bring awareness to the long standing Korean community in Baltimore.
