“Stories of Home” Community Screening

May 15th, 5:00pm6:30pm

Free

Celebrating Stories of Home During API Heritage Month

In these times of disruption and dislocation, storytelling can offer people a way to connect, reflect, and celebrate their memories and cultures. Stories of Home engages immigrants and refugees in exploring their unique narratives of “home” and building bridges of solidarity across communities. Please join us for a special screening of “material memories” stories of treasured objects and heirlooms and the histories they carry, to honor Asian Pacific Islander Heritage Month, including work from our 2020 virtual reality project (to be shown in 2D). This work has been spearheaded by StoryCenter’s Artist-in-Residence Parul Wadhwa, who will moderate a panel of the storytellers discussing why narrative and art are vital to community building and wellness.
