Christine Wong Yap

Wong Yap focuses on manifesting psychological wellbeing through creative collaboration. Her cooperative art projects allow participants to explore specific dimensions of happiness: belonging, connection, and identity. Her project collaborators engage with writing, printmaking, symbology, and sewing to express the tenets of wellbeing. Participants in Wong Yap’s process not only generate an artistic product, they also reflect on the impact of belonging, connection, and identity on subjective wellbeing.

Gratitude Letter Project

Writing a thank-you note can lift your mood—and cheer up the person who receives it. Want to be a part of this win-win proposition?  

Write and send a gratitude letter using stationery created by Between You and Me artist Christine Wong Yap. Yap’s work investigates positive psychology, including two-way mood-boosters such as thank-you notes. Join in her Gratitude Letter Project, which will culminate in a Sheboygan mailbag of gratitude. Easy instructions can be found at socialstudio.space.

Christine Wong Yap discusses how care manifests in her artistic practice through her commitment to the research of positive psychology.
