With~standing! Exploring Immigration and Belonging in Maine
May 8, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Students from the Department of Communication and Journalism will present a free, public performance and dialogue about perceptions of, and experiences with, immigration in Maine.
Students crafted and will perform a collection of “found” poems, based on verbatim data from conversations with family, friends and community members; from their personal experiences and reactions; and from information from news and other sources. In addition to the performance, students will facilitate a dialogue with the audience to further cross-cultural understanding and connection.
The students partnered with the Maine MultiCultural Center to inform the performance.
