SEADS Presents: Reimagining Lao Pasts, Lao Futures, June

Coming to Minneapolis this June: SEADS Presents: Reimagining Lao Pasts, Lao Futures

“What are the stories you carry? Join us for a healing community conversation through creative inquiry as we hold space that acknowledges and honors the diverse and complex journeys of our Lao Minnesotan diaspora stories. Lao veterans, elders, activists and youth are encouraged to attend. This event is free and open to those who identify as Lao Minnesotan or have Lao heritage. Food and drinks will be provided. Childcare available by request.”

***Please note that due to the sensitive nature of these topics, this event is specifically for the Lao community only. Keep posted for future conversations that are open to the general public.***

SEADS (Southeast Asian Diaspora Storytelling) is a project of The SEAD Project, a Southeast Asian-based community organization. SEADS is in collaboration with The SEAD Project, ManForward & Partners.

Minnesota Remembers Vietnam is an initiative led by Twin Cities PBS aimed at inspiring Minnesotans to remember, share stories, recognize bravery, express their reasons for dissent, and foster understanding around the lasting impact of war. TPT is partnering with the Minnesota Humanities Center to bring public conversations around these topics to communities across the state, thanks to support from the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund that was created with a vote of the people of Minnesota on November 4, 2008.
