Through a collaboration with Green Card Voices, a Minneapolis-based non-profit organization, ASI has created an exhibition that uses video storytelling to present seven experiences of contemporary immigrants from the Nordic countries.
By sharing these stories, The ASI and Green Card Voices honor and thank immigrant populations that continue to play a vital role locally and in our nation’s society.
The ASI is located in the Phillips West neighborhood, one of the most culturally diverse, yet economically challenged areas in Minnesota. ASI provides access to arts and cultural identity programming through Minneapolis Public School partnerships including the Story Swap Program, a collaboration with Wellstone International High School. Through Story Swap, Swedish-American elders and students share their family immigration stories through an arts-integrated curriculum. A book, Green Card Youth Voices: Immigration Stories from a Minneapolis High School, written by 30 Wellstone International High School students, recently received the Gold Medal Award for Best Multicultural Non-Fiction Chapter Book in the Moonbeam Children’s Book Awards.
