When Home Won’t Let You Stay: Stories of Refugees in America
On Tuesday, March 26, at 6 p.m. in the Winona Public Library (WPL), documentary artist James A. Bowey will share stories and photographs from “When Home Won’t Let You Stay,” his traveling exhibition about refugees in Minnesota, and discuss how current refugee policies and attitudes reflect the state of the empathetic imagination in civic life.
This compelling talk explores how people can bear witness in a contentious world, and awaken their imagination to the possibilities of diversity and human connection. Participants will walk away from this one-of-a-kind program with a renewed sense of purpose and a deeper appreciation for photography, creativity, and how empathy is an essential mindset for contemporary education, business, and democracy.
This event is free and open to the public.
