NHIA Community, join us for:
Art and Understanding of New Hampshire’s Refugee Communities
Friday, October 27 at 1pm / French Hall Auditorium
Image: Becky Field, Bhutanese women pray and sing during a Hindu celebration of Lord Krishna’s birthday, or Janmashtami, (detail) 2012
Hear how Becky Field (NHIA photography certificate graduate) was able to bridge the divide between native-born Granite Staters and our immigrant neighbors through her project Different Roots, Common Dreams. (Teti Library owns a copy of this book!)
Listen as a member of the Bhutanese community recounts their personal experience—why they had to leave their homeland, what it was like in a refugee camp, and finally what has the experience been settling in New Hampshire.
Enjoy dance and song as a young person from the New Hampshire Bhutanese community performs for us.
Sponsored by: AS Insurance, and NHIA’s Student Leadership Committee, Foundations Department and Teti Library and Special Collections.
Bhutanese tea will be served! All NHIA Community Welcome
