    Tuesday Feb 6
    5 pm - 6:30 pm PST

    What We Carried

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. Walters Theatre.
