Tuesday, March 26, 2019 at 6:00 pm

Documentary artist James A. Bowey shares stories and photographs from "When Home Won't Let You Stay," his traveling exhibition about refugees in Minnesota; and discusses how current refugee policies and attitudes reflect the state of the empathetic imagination in civic life. This compelling talk explores how we can bear witness in a contentious world, and awaken our 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.
