Stories have power. The Immigrant Story (TIS), believes the most important stories originate from within the immigrant community. With that in mind, we cordially invite you to The Immigrant Story Live — a chance to experience the power of storytelling. Sponsored by the City of Beaverton, the event features four compelling, contemporary stories told — and lived — by members of our immigrant community.
This live event will celebrate our storytellers as well as the broader Welcoming Week, which is designed to bring together immigrants, refugees, and U.S.-born residents to raise awareness of the benefits of welcoming everyone to our communities.
The Immigrant Story Live kicks off at 7pm. with a musical performance featuring a collaboration between Masumi Timson, a renowned musician of the koto, one of Japan’s most treasured instruments, and Fumino Ando, a reputed Oregon Symphony violinist from Japan. Afterward, from 8pm. to 9pm., four different storytellers from across the globe will share unique stories about the arduous and frequently dangerous journeys that brought them to the United States.
This is a free event, and seating is limited to 150. Doors open at 6:30pm.
