First come, first served.

Immigrant Story
Who We Are is our way of honoring those affected by the horrific violence that took place aboard a Portland MAX train on May 26, 2017. It is a visual narrative of six Muslim women who wear hijabs. The six stories were documented by The Immigrant Story in 2017 and 2018.
What We Carried: Fragments and Memories from Iraq and Syria is an ongoing photography and storytelling project. Iraqi and Syrian refugees tell their own stories by writing on Jim Lommasson’s photographs of the things that they carried from their homeland.

Target audience:

Adults, 50+, Teens

Event type:
