Description

Reading: The Migration Stories Project

Thursday, December 7, 4pm

Join us for a public reading on the theme of changing as we move through space. Student and faculty readers will read from work featured in the newly-issued community anthology of The Migration Stories Project.

Presented in partnership with the Arts in Creative Writing at the University of Chicago.
Brown People Are the Wrens in the Parking Lot is a project that facilitate by and brings together faculty, students, staff and community members at the Reva and David Logan Center for the Arts to reflect on issues of connectedness, home and immigration. It is comprised of a set of seemingly impromptu interventions as well as an exhibition that will be on view from November 10, 2017 through January 7, 2018 in the Logan Center Gallery. The exhibition will serve as a site for responses from the community and will host a number of public programs throughout its duration.

This project was created as a service to the community of the Logan Center and beyond. We invite all those interested in learning more about the project to visit wrens.uchicago.edu.
