Sunday, June 19, 2011: 1 – 6 PM, Museum of Photographic Arts

Meet your neighbor and celebrate San Diego’s diversity with Pulitzer Prize winner Don Bartletti and local photography heroes Sam Hodgson and Roberto “Bear” Guerra, as we learn about refugees who contribute to their new communities in San Diego after being forced by war and persecution to flee their homes abroad. The event will also feature fantastic food representing various refugee cuisines, the San Diego premiere of “Where We Live,” a documentary by award-winning Iraqi filmmaker Fady Hadid, vivid video installations, and inspiring discussions. Representatives from the region’s refugee-serving organizations will be there as well as members of the various refugee communities. Entry to the event is FREE and includes access to the museum’s regular galleries.
