(Ex)change: Immigration, Identity and Cultural Exchange
presented at 516 ARTS by the National Hispanic Cultural Center
In conjunction with the exhibition Art at the Border: 21st Century Responses, the National Hispanic Cultural Center (NHCC) hosts a participatory, facilitated dialogue at 516 ARTS. Join local artists, cultural leaders and community members for a dialogue on the topics of immigration, cultural layering and history in association with current issues related to immigration. The goal of the dialogue is to increase understanding of the long-standing impacts of immigration on our history and culture and also stimulate intergenerational conversation among people of diverse backgrounds. This event is produced by the NHCC Education Program, which is participating with the International Sites of Conscience as part of the Immigration and Civil Rights Sites of Conscience Network. This network of museums across the United States and Europe are committed to use historical perspective in order to stimulate ongoing local and national conversations on immigration and its related issues, promote humanitarian and democratic values and treat all audiences as stakeholders in the immigration dialogue.
The dialogue is limited to 25 participants.
