Boston #StandsWithImmigrants: The Stories Behind the Faces
Individuals who are featured in the Boston #StandsWithImmigrants project will share their personal immigration stories in a moderated conversation that includes audience Q&A. A short reception will precede the program.
#StandsWithImmigrants is a photography initiative that projects large-format images of Boston immigrants upon public spaces and landmarks throughout the city in order to highlight the critical role that immigrants play in our society.
Through the end of May 2018, the Institute is dedicating a digital exhibit space to showcase the project’s powerful imagery, enabling visitors and students from across the country to learn about the experiences of immigrants from throughout Boston.
