What We Carried: Fragments from Iraq and Syria

“What We Carried: Fragments from Iraq and Syria” with Jim Lommasson

As part of our bi-monthly speaker series at the Walters, photographer Jim Lommasson will discuss “What We Carried: Fragments and Memories from Iraq and Syria,” a collaborative storytelling project with Iraqi and Syrian refugees who have fled to their homelands and have come to America. Lommasson invites Iraqi and Syrian refugees to share a personal item significant to their lives, such as a family snapshot, an heirloom dish or childhood toy. The carried objects and the intense personal stories behind them combine to illustrate the common threads that bind all of humanity: the love shared for family, friends and the places people call home.

Join us for this free event at 7pm on Tuesday, February 20, 2019. in the Walters theater. Light refreshments served. FREE.
