- “Workshop of expression and migration”. 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., Wednesday July 28. This workshop is inspired by the “Uncaged Art” exhibition, which features works of art created by young detainees in immigrant detention. Participants learn about young people and migration and then have the opportunity to express themselves through art, as they receive an activity kit with various art supplies and can create works of art that express their emotions about the experience of migration. The works will then spark further conversations and learning within the group. Register to attend by emailing [email protected] For any questions, contact Kayla Myers at [email protected]
