THE LAATIKO PROJECT: The Immigration Experience
Friday, September 19, 1:00 pm
at the Aurora Public LibraryLaatikko/Box is a project about immigration. Our ancestors left a security in culture and language - a place where they knew themselves. People leave spaces all the time: relational spaces, home spaces, habitual spaces. Why do we leave? How long does change take? Is home a physical place? Laatikko/Box provides a space to contemplate these questions from both immigrant and personal perspectives, considering universal human experiences of unknowing, change, discomfort, difference. Using violin and voice, Sara weaves Finnish folk song with both archival audio recordings and conversations with her own Finnish-American family members. During the presentation, participants can view pictures, letters, and other material from Finnish-Americans.
This program, sponsored by Arrowhead Library System, was funded in part or in whole with money from Minnesota's Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
