The Museum of International Folk Art Gallery of Conscience team is pleased to invite you to take part in a community-based dialogue as part of its current exhibit, “Between Two Worlds: Folk Artists Reflect on the Immigrant Experience,” which explores the interrelated themes of living between worlds and the struggle to belong, through the lens of traditional arts. The dialogue will give you an opportunity to tour the exhibit, meet your neighbors, and explore together some of your ideas about the themes of home, belonging, place and displacement that are raised by the artworks in the exhibit. The series is part of the National Dialogues on Immigration Project of the International Coalition of Sites of Conscience.

ABOUT LITTLEGLOBE

IN THE INTERNATIONAL

DISTRICT OF ABQ
_______________ 
Since 2011, Littleglobe has been working with the Albuquerque International District community–residents, families, neighborhood associations, service organizations, and fellow non-profits.

One of our projects, “Stories of Route 66: The International District,” has been engaging residents in collaborative art and creative placemaking–creating and strengthening community relationships, transforming neighborhood spaces, and generating individual and collective capacity.

In 2014, Littleglobe collaborated with over 130 community members in the International District every Sunday

for 7 months. This “community ensemble” envisioned and co-created several works of art that premiered during the ID LIVE! weekend of July 26-27, 2014. Currently, the UNM School of Architecture and Planning–inspired by July works of art and in collaboration with residents–is designing a permanent “story plaza” that will be built along Route 66/Central Avenue in the ID. Find a full project description

HERE.

Since July of 2014, Littleglobe continues to work with community members on a range of initiatives identified as community priorities, including the RARERefugees-Helping Refugees Program and Global 505–a coalition of organizations serving our immigrant and refugee communities.

___________

The “Stories of Route 66” project is being funded, in part, by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts/Our Town Program; the McCune Charitable Foundation; the FUNd at the Albuquerque Community Foundation; the NM Legislature/State Senator Tim Keller; City of Albuquerque/City Councilor Rey Garduno; Bernalillo County/County Commissioner Maggie Hart Stebbins; the Global Education Fund; New Mexico Arts (a division of the Department of Cultural Affairs), the Jessica Love Foundation, and a wide range of in-kind donors, including PB&J Famil

y Services and La Montanita Coop. See th
