The Yarn is excited to announce a new storytelling event focused on the lived experiences of those impacted by immigration. Community members will, once again, take the stage to share true stories.
Home: True Stories of Immigration will feature stories that originate in Mexico, Colombia, Italy, Panama, and Puerto Rico. The topic of immigration in the U.S. has most recently been explored through the lens of media and politics. The Yarn offers another platform for exploration, where the audience will hear unfiltered, diverse, and personal experiences related to immigration directly from local storytellers.. The show will include stories from those who have immigrated, children of immigrants, dreamers, and citizens whose families have been in the U.S. for generations.
This is the second in a two-part series.
