Migration Stories, a project of Borderland Collective artist Mark Menjivar
October 7, 12–5pm at Anniversary Plaza, on the Quad near the Illini Union
Migration Stories is an oral history project focusing on personal narratives of how we arrived to where we are now. We believe that where we came from and how we arrived to where we are now is important. Not just for our individual lives, but for our communal lives as well.
Stories can open a door to empathy and move us to action. We each have a migration story—some are just more recent than others. Following a workshop with students exploring the historical, practical, and philosophical elements of oral histories and how they are used within the visual arts, Menjivar and the participating students will work together in a public space to invite individuals to participate. Stories will be distributed back to participants and made available to the public in digital and print forms. Listen
