“Common Threads” - Celebrating the Contributions of Houston’s Refugee Community
Around the globe, over fifteen million people are considered refugees, persons who are unable or unwilling to return to their home countries due to violence or well-founded fear of persecution. The United States receives the largest number of refugees yearly for resettlement, and Houston is one of the top resettlement cities. Refugees have made significant contributions to our city, yet they are a struggling community.
Vox Culture, an Arts and Advocacy network, is excited to partner with The Community Cloth for a three-event series themed “Common Threads” that will highlight the contributions of artisans from Houston’s refugee community.
DESIGN WORKSHOP | Oct 20 | 2-4pm: An interactive jewelry making collaborative that will be held at the Vox Culture warehouse. The $25 fee goes towards training for the participant and a refugee artisan, materials, and a take-home customized wrap bracelet.
