Foster High School students Diana Hassan Zada, Mariyam Faizi, and Muna Aidid performed their powerful poems at our recent “Faces of the Community” virtual celebration of art and community. Whether you missed the event, or want to experience the poems one more time, we invite you to watch recordings of the performances:
The students are participants in the Stories of Arrival: Refugee and Immigrant Youth Voices Poetry Project. Their powerful visual poems, currently on display at Spice Bridge, include creative self-portraits, along with poetry and art that honors homelands, tells of border crossings and migration, and speaks to dreams for a more peaceful world.
Our “Faces of the Community” event was supported, in part, by a grant from 4Culture, and by the City of Tukwila Arts Commission.
