This event takes as its point of departure the visualizations artist Ai Weiwei has created of contemporary refugees and their sociopolitical contexts through his artworks and films. Local refugees will join in this conversation to begin a dialogue of learning and sharing across different communities and cultures. Please join Lindsay Stark, Associate Professor of Social Work and Public Health, Brown School; Diego Abente, Ahmad Farid Barekzai, and Nadya Kanim of the International Institute of St. Louis; and Sabine Eckmann, William T. Kemper Director and Chief Curator, for a participatory and reflective discussion.

Free and open to the public. Please register here >>
