“A Tapestry of Our Roots” at BRAHM

March 7 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Registration Required

Join us for a special discussion of the exhibition A Tapestry of Our Roots with representatives from Q’Pasa Appalachia and Immigrant Connection of the High Country.

Immigrants have played a vital role in shaping the cultural, social, and economic fabric of many countries around the world, and the High Country is no exception. In June of 2023, Immigrant Connection of the High Country and Q’ Pasa Appalachia decided to bring this project to light to showcase the beauty of the tapestry of immigrants’ roots here in Boone and the surrounding areas.

“The Tapestry of Our Roots” refers to the diverse backgrounds, experiences, and contributions of individuals who have migrated to the High Country. This tapestry is often rich with stories of perseverance, resilience, and the pursuit of a better life. Immigrants bring with them their unique traditions, languages, and customs, enriching the cultural landscape of their new home. They also contribute to the economy by starting businesses, creating jobs, and adding to the country’s overall productivity.

“A Tapestry of Our Roots” serves as a reminder of the power of diversity and the strength that arises from different perspectives and backgrounds coming together. It is a testament to the human spirit and the universal desire for a better future.
