RISSE for Refugees
Join us at this special event where you can hear directly from some refugees and immigrants who are currently undergoing the transition to a new country and way of life. Paintings done by individuals participating in RISSE programs will be on display with some of the artists present to tell the stories of their journey to the United States and their hopes for the future of their children.
Refreshments will be served and there will be a cash bar. Event followed by a showing of The Iliad.*
