Welcoming Week & The Immigrant Story Present a Live Storytelling Showcase

Wednesday, September 18, 2019

A chance to experience the power of storytelling. Sponsored by the City of Beaverton, this event features four compelling contemporary stories told - and lived - by members of our immigrant community. The live event celebrates our storytellers, as well as the broader Welcoming Week, which is designed to bring together immigrants, refugees, and U.S.-born residents to raise awareness of the benefits of welcoming everyone to our communities. The Immigrant Story Live kicks off with a musical performance, featuring a collaboration between Masumi Timson, a renowned musician of the koto, one of Japan's most treasured instruments; and Fumino Ando, a reputed Oregon Symphony violinist from Japan. Next, four storytellers from across the globe will share unique stories about the arduous and frequently dangerous journeys that brought them to the United States. Free and open to the public; no registration required. Ages 13 & up. Seating is limited to 150. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
