Hear stories of (im)migration from representatives of the Bronzeville Historical Society, the National Hellenic Museum, the Swedish American Museum, and the Ukrainian National Museum. Discover meaningful sites across the city where members of these communities have come together, past and present, as they’ve made homes for themselves in Chicago.
Key to this conversation is the term (im)migration, which envelops a more inclusive and equitable understanding of the many paths all people have taken to arrive where they are today. After individual stories are shared, the panel will convene to discuss commonalities and differences in experience, and consider Chicago’s great places of unity.
Open House Chicago 2020 community partner Chicago Cultural Alliance co-convenes this discussion.
